"chicken pie and hair" bounces emails


[link to this post]
 
After spending the afternoon trying to work out why email to me is bouncing I found it was the subject line that was breaking it. Putting the subject

Chicken pie and hair

results in a bounced email. Does anyone else get this? Any idea what is going on. Its all rather worrying, how much of my email is not getting though? Gmail, hotmail and thunderbird all had the same problem.

Thanks

Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the server for the recipient domain myname.fsworld.co.uk by mail-in.freeserve.com.
[193.252.22.141].

The error that the other server returned was:
550 5.2.0 Mail rejete. Mail rejected. ouk_513 [513]

"Chicken" bounces emails

Peculiar! It's the word "chicken" that's doing it.

"Subject: Chicken" is getting bounced by EE when sent from non-EE email to @myname.freeserve.co.uk. From an EE email is OK.

From other studies I have seen that EE operates a Junk Email Protection, similar to one employed by the MS Outlook mail client, but before it does the junk mail thing you see in the Orange Webmail. I have only see this bounce emails containing links to known spamming sites.

However these "Chicken" emails are not bounced when sent to MS's Hotmail/Outlook.com addys.

Clearly a reference to those VHS tapes we had in the 80's which involved chickens.

Don't need VHS now as we have the internet for that sort of thing.

And this, friends, is why you should all use Gmail. Flawless delivery, self to self.

It's all there in post 1 - "Gmail, hotmail and thunderbird all had the same problem."

Yes, because the destination address in each case is on an EE server which apparently dislikes the word "chicken".

Having told us the subject line, we're all wondering what the content could be smile
Do tell, and hope we get a glance before the mods do
