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://

An example of a valid request is :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<SetNotificationPreferencesRequest xmlns="urn:ebay:apis:eBLBaseComponents">

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