Hi all

I'm trying to send some bitcoins having enough funds, but my own bitcoin-qt says I have not enough funds.

Code:
20:05:47 sendfrom 1HXyhhXs2B8C6uomRcvYFsqApmw5HDj6o4 1dice8EMZmqKvrGE4Qc9bUFf9PX3xaYDp 0.001
20:05:47 Account has insufficient funds (code -6)

Could somebody help me?

You have 0.00148702 BTC in that account and are trying to send out 0.001 BTC. This would suffice were it not for the transaction fee of 0.0005.

Code:
sendfrom <fromaccount> <tobitcoinaddress> <amount> [minconf=1] [comment] [comment-to]
<amount> is a real and is rounded to the nearest 0.00000001
requires wallet passphrase to be set with walletpassphrase first

account is not a address. try "sendtoaddress" instead.

Code:
sendtoaddress 1dice8EMZmqKvrGE4Qc9bUFf9PX3xaYDp 0.01

0.001 is too low. SD changed the min. amount to 0.01

Thanks

I understood from reading something somewhere (I'm quite new and I can not remember where I read everything) that transactions can be made without fees, and they just will delay more than if made with fees. Am I wrong?

That's correct in theory. However bitcoin-qt enforces a mandatory "voluntary fee" of 0.0005 for a transaction. You'd need to use another client to avoid that.

Looks like gyrsur has bumped your balance up to the necessary amount.

Thanks. I'll check other clients. I'm not against fees, I know they will maintain BTC system running after 21M, but I also want the freedom to choose if pay them or not.

It's the .005 fee that's getting you. It should let you avoid it if you say no though.
