If you are receiving this error message from your SetNotificationPreferences call, it is likely because you are specifying the AlertEmail incorrectly. The Alert Email needs to have a mailto in front of it, in the form mailto://youremailaddress@yoursite.com.

An example of a valid request is :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<SetNotificationPreferencesRequest xmlns="urn:ebay:apis:eBLBaseComponents">
<RequesterCredentials>
<eBayAuthToken>x</eBayAuthToken>
</RequesterCredentials>
<ApplicationDeliveryPreferences>
<AlertEmail>mailto://youremailaddress@yoursite.com</AlertEmail>
<AlertEnable>Enable</AlertEnable>
<ApplicationEnable>Enable</ApplicationEnable>
<ApplicationURL>http://yourlistener.com/</ApplicationURL>
</ApplicationDeliveryPreferences>
</SetNotificationPreferencesRequest>

Please note that the AlertEmail and AlertEnable are optional tags, and do not need to be specified.
