ftp error 550 folder not found


I am having an ftp script(runs in HP unix server) that connect to another server where we have different folders named as email addresses(eg."anarayana@yahoo.com").

Then it goes to each folder and put the file in that folder.

I found an error when remote folder is not created.

"550 anarayana@yahoo.com: folder not found"

I have handled this error using "550" in the log file.

But I got the failure of the script when I got the below line even though there is no error.

"550 bytes sent in 0.00 seconds (7246.38 Kbytes/s)"

Is there any better way to handle these errors?

What are the possible related errors that may occur when I execute the ftp script.

Thanks in advance.

One way - look for other words besides 550 after you find 550 as the first word.
You will havre this problem with every transfer that moves a number of bytes that equals one of the (many) valid return ftp codes.
