    The message could not be sent. The authentication setting might not be
    correct for your outgoing e-mail [SMTP] server. For help solving this
    problem, go to Help, search for "Troubleshoot Windows Mail", and read the
    "I'm having problems sending e-mail" section. If you need help determining
    the proper server settings, please contact your e-mail service provider.

    The rejected e-mail address was '[email protected]'. Subject 'Fw: : Coming to an
    airport, near you...', Account: 'pop3', Server: '',
    Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '501 5.1.3 Bad recipient address syntax',
    Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 501, Error Number: 0x800CCC79

    You are trying to send a message to only a part of the email address,
    '[email protected]' is an incomplete address.

    Mac's comment on your post makes sense, as the essential parts of the email
    address that *must* follow the @ appear to be missing. However, if the
    address were actually incomplete when you attempted to send, I suspect you
    would have received a local syntax error message.

    Have you contacted your ISP's technical support for step-by-step setup
    instructions to their mail server?
