I tried to send an email to a lot of recipients and got an error back. Trouble is, I can't see the bottom of the error message to try to resolve it. It is below my screen shot and I cannot get it to be smaller or get to the bottom to select a choice. I tried shutting down mail and it won't let me do that either.

I am Pete, and I'll be happy to assist with your question today.

If possible, try accessing your email on a different computer or device and let me know what the error message is.
Also let me know who your email provider is, and what email application you are using.

It just says Warning at the top.


But I have since figured out what was wrong with the addresses and why it kicked it back with a warning. The person who sent me the addresses put ; (colons) between each one and they needed commas. So it's something about this not being a correct address because it is reading the entire thing as one address. At the bottom, I know there are two to three choices it is offering me. One is send message anyway (default), Two is Cancel Message or something to that effect and the Third one I can't read. I need to choose Cancel Message but it will not let me go down to that area and select it. I have even tried to tab to the next answer and it won't let me do that.

I cannot figure out how to get down there to select an answer since it is below the laptop screen.

Hi Beth,
In that case, you will need to try force-quitting the email application and resend the email again, this time with commas.

To force quit the email program, choose Force Quit from the Apple menu (or press Command-Option-Esc), then choose the email program in the Force Quit window, and click Force Quit.

Thanks Pete....I could not find a force quit earlier. Should have googled that.


Looks like that solved my problem.


Have a great day!
