    I don't know how you're attempting to do this but basically, you can't send email to a person or a company; instead, you send email to a mail server. These are generally identified with the "@" sign. For example, to send email to Fred Jones at hotmail, you would send it to Fred.Jones@hotmail.com. The "hotmail.com" is the name of the mail server, the "@" sign indicates that it is for email.



    IF you're trying to send mail to an internet address (i.e., http://companyname.com) that won't work because that's not an email address.



    This means you have to get the email address of the company in order to send them mail.
