sieve script rejects email w/o message

There is no reason to escape a semicolon in a string in a Sieve rule. But the backslash character is ignored in your C-style attempt at adding a new line character (which is not needed). So when I use your rule in a Fastmail Sieve script, the automatically generated reply is:
Your message was automatically rejected by Sieve, a mail
filtering language.

The following reason was given:
Do not attach to this email; attach your article to a NEW emailn
So if you remove the backshash n it works fine for me. The reject message is properly sent as shown to the sender. When you say that the reject message doesn’t work, what exactly did you mean?

Hi Bill... I made the one change you suggested, but still not getting the message... I'm using as my email provider (Postbox as the email client)... also, should I move this to the Fastmal sub-forum? Added: here's the message I do get tho': 550 No Such User Here"
