I recently upgrade my client for the first time ever.  I had a 0.3.x copy.  After I got the new 0.6.2 client I was unable to send coins to a friends address.  I deleted everything buy my wallet.dat file to try and re download the block chain.  This took many hours, appears to have re downloaded the new blockchain, I still have all my coins, but Im still unable to send them to my friend.

Help?

EDIT:  I was trying to send to an invalid address.  The address I was trying to send to had a non visible illegal character in it somehow...

Im still unable to send them to my friend.

Is the problem that you are getting an error message when trying to send, or is it that your friend is saying that they are not arriving?

If the problem is the payment is not arriving, then check the blockchain to see if the transaction appears there.  If it does, then the problem is on your friend's end, not yours.

The address field turns red.  I get no error message.  The coins dont leave my wallet.

Are you typing in your encryption password?

Are you cut and pasting the send to address?  Does it have a leading or trailing space in the cut and paste? (If so, elminate any spaces)

I dont have an encryption password, I dont think.  Yes I am cut and pasting, there are no spaces.

Sidenote: Its a really bad feeling when the transaction doesnt send and I dont even get an error message...

Try sending a small amount (like .0001) to a different address, I vaguely recall reading that you can't send to an invalid address.

I was able to send a .01 coin bet to satoshi dice from my new client... still not able to send to my friends.  2 different people have given me addresses from their wallets and addresses from their mt gox account... they are using 0.6.2 and a blockchain.info wallet... this is weird.

Still sounds like a problem with the address.

Can you try pasting it into something else that will try to validate it?   Such as the Bitcoin faucet?

Bookend for this thread:

Problem ended up being an unprintable character in the address that was being copied and pasted.
