What is PII_EMAIL_B79C1D8?
PII_EMAIL_B79C1D8 is an error code that indicates that there is personal information in an email that should not be there. This could be anything from a home address to a Social Security number. This error can occur for a number of reasons, but it is most often caused by accidentally including PII in an email or by trying to send an email to too many recipients at once.
There are a few different ways to fix this error, but the most common solution is to simply remove the personal information from the email before sending it. If you need to send an email to multiple people at once, you can use a distribution list or bcc (blind carbon copy) instead of cc (carbon copy).
