First, let’s begin with emailing from your phones. It’s a simple process and should never see an error like:

Your MSG could not be DELIVERED because InvalidPduContent

Soon we will discuss daylight savings time, servers and time stamping. And radiowave propagation.

Update: So far, it would appear that any SMS message over 160 characters causes this problem. Now, the thing is, the phone (a Motorola RAZR v3xx) is supposed to be able to send email as well as SMS. I believe it uses the same interface. So 160 characters doesn’t fly. Plus, the interface is supposed to take anything over 160 characters and automatically break it into multiple messages. Hmm. I wonder if that’s it. Perhaps it sends the first 160 characters successfully but fails to put the correct header on the next message so the later part of the email doesn’t get sent successfully.

yes but even if i only send 3 characters i still get this message wen replying however if i send it as a new message then i dont det the error message is there anyway to fix this because it takes way too much time to keep starting a new message

I haven’t seen this in a bit. I’ll try to reproduce it and let you know what I find.

I get this message any time I send a text from my sony ericsson walkman phone to an email address even though my email address seems to receive it just fine

I haven’t been able to reproduce it so I cannot offer any troubleshooting. One thing you may try is cleaning out your outbox and inbox. I know the Motorola v3xx starts acting strange when I have too many text msgs in the in and out box. Don’t forget to clean out your drafts folder too.
