This is a SMTP protocol error that the receiving SMTP server generated because of the contents of a command your SMTP server sent. It probably due to an extremely long line in your mail message. Is is difficult to tell. Which SMTP server are your using? Which mail delivery software are you using? Are there any long lines in your message?

 

From RFC 821

4.5.3. SIZES

 

There are several objects that have required minimum maximum

sizes. That is, every implementation must be able to receive

objects of at least these sizes, but must not send objects

larger than these sizes.

 

 

****************************************************

* *

* TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT POSSIBLE, IMPLEMENTATION *

* TECHNIQUES WHICH IMPOSE NO LIMITS ON THE LENGTH *

* OF THESE OBJECTS SHOULD BE USED. *

* *

****************************************************

 

user

 

The maximum total length of a user name is 64 characters.

 

domain

 

The maximum total length of a domain name or number is 64

characters.

 

path

 

The maximum total length of a reverse-path or

forward-path is 256 characters (including the punctuation

and element separators).

 

command line

 

The maximum total length of a command line including the

command word and the <CRLF> is 512 characters.

 

reply line

 

The maximum total length of a reply line including the

reply code and the <CRLF> is 512 characters.

 

text line

 

The maximum total length of a text line including the

<CRLF> is 1000 characters (but not counting the leading

dot duplicated for transparency).

 

recipients buffer

 

The maximum total number of recipients that must be

buffered is 100 recipients.

 

 

****************************************************

* *

* TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT POSSIBLE, IMPLEMENTATION *

* TECHNIQUES WHICH IMPOSE NO LIMITS ON THE LENGTH *

* OF THESE OBJECTS SHOULD BE USED. *

* *

****************************************************

 

Errors due to exceeding these limits may be reported by using

the reply codes, for example:

 

500 Line too long.

 

501 Path too long

 

552 Too many recipients.

 

552 Too much mail data.
