Sending error: 441 posting failed System.ServiceModel.FaultException`1

Sep 16, 2010 at 3:04 PM

Trying to post in an Answers forum, I received this error message:

Unable to send or receive messages for the MS Forums account. Windows Live Mail could not post your message.

Subject 'Re: How do I submit feedback or file a bug for IE9?'
Server Error: 441
Server Response: 441 posting failed System.ServiceModel.FaultException`1[[System.ServiceModel.ExceptionDetail, System.ServiceModel, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089]]: Exception of type 'Microsoft.Com.Forums.Security.NotAuthorizedException' was thrown.
Server: ''
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCCA9
Protocol: NNTP
Port: 119
Secure(SSL): No

There was clearly something illegal in my post. Could this have been trapped by a phishnet:

Who's on first?

If so, is there any way of rendering a hyperlink legal?

Can you post to the test answers-forum?

Have you enabled NNTP-Access for answers forums?

Q1: Yes, latest a couple of days ago (at tnsandbox – does that make a difference?) to find out where the decoding errors creep in.
Q2: Yes, a long time ago.
Could there be a ban on posting hyperlinks where the link is not the same as the href? I might try some tests in the sandbox.

I don't know... but I know, that the answers forum has often such "Server Fault Exceptions"...

OK, thanks. I'll see if anyone knows anything over at reportabug.
