A couple of thoughts about this:
1) I think the command as I have written it works sometimes.
2) I think it requires a valid Internet email address - I think the
absence of that is what the error message was reporting.
3) I am not a MOO expert, so I might be wrong.
4) The MOO is a work in progress and thus is sometimes flakey. Trying
again later sometimes works.
THANKS FOR THE FEEDBACK!
