Mail System Error - Returned Mail

is usually due to a mis-configured account or mail delivery system on
destination computer; however, it could be caused by your message since
some mail systems refuse messages with invalid header information, or if
they are too large.

Your message was rejected by thor-new.fsklaw.com for the following

     Address "craigwhite at azapple.com" assumed to be invalid - Impossible
to verify

The following recipients did not receive this message:

     <tms3 at fsklaw.com> 
 Please reply to <Postmaster at cox.net> 
 if you feel this message to be in error.
I appreciate that mx for sklaw.com want's to be selective in its
handling of inbound email. 

He shouldn't send private mail if his mail server is so configured that
his system won't receive replies from valid sources, via valid smtp

If he wishes to investigate - I don't have any significant headers - the
above is the only details except that I use a mail server on my local
network and 'smarthost' send mail through cox.net mail server. This has
not been a problem for any other email activity anywhere else and
automated cox.net smtp system suggests that problem is due to mis-
configured mail delivery system on the destination computer.
