Congress And Blogs

So I was trying to get an urgent message to a couple Hill staffers about this mornings first ever ‘Blog Row‘ on Capitol Hill. I was in fact replying to one of the messages I received about attending. I replied in plain text, and with no attachments…

To my surprise my reply was bounced – several times.

SMTP error from remote mail server after end of data:

Re: Details for Tomorrows BLOG ROW

Anyone want to take a guess at which of those words I had to remove to get the message delivered?
