I'm hoping this is an easy problem, but I'm having an issue using SharePoint 2013 designer to send an email. I'm using "Created By" and a custom field that captures email addresses (separated by semi-colons) to send an email which is populated with other fields from the current item.

I have three steps that require a custom email be sent utilizing this same functionality. All three steps show up RED when I click "Check workflow for errors" in designer 2013. I'm currently at a loss as to the reason for the error. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Sounds to me as if there are no email settings configured for your farm.

Open Central Administration => System Settings => Configure outgoing e-mail settings.
