I notice that recent emails from gmail come with some sort of automated final line of the style
One specific example I just got is this:
I also notice, and can repeat this, that when I reply to this message with my mail client (alpine 2.00 OSX) it says it is sending the message and then times out with the message:
Waited 15 seconds for server reply. Break connection to server [Y/N]?
And when I press Y it says:
[>Mail not sent. Sending error: 421 SMTP connection broken (reply)<]
If I delete the hex code from the bottom of the message I am replying to, my reply is sent without a problem.
Does anyone know what this weird hex-ish signature is? And why is it stopping me from sending mail unless I delete it?
