export issue

F.R. Ashley
 

Hi,

I have tried to export a small log to adif and then email it to a
friend.   I keep getting error message saying there is spam in the
file.  My friend has 2 email addresses and both reject the email.   What
could be in the file that would be seen as spam by his email programs?

+ Only your friend's internet service provider(s) can answer that question.

You could try changing the name of the file to [something].txt . Perhaps his ISPs just reject anything with a dangerous or unknown file name extension. ADIF files are actually text files anyway.
