My wife has just tried to send 2 emails using OUTLOOK EXPRESS with about 6 recipients each. The first one went ok but now she is getting this error.

An unknown error was returned from the SMTP server. Subject 'Fw: Darwin', Account: 'Yahoo', Server: 'smtp.mail.yahoo.co.uk', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '521 yahoo.com closing transmission channel. User is over the limit for messages allowed to be sent in a single day.', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 521, Error Number: 0x800CCC61

As she has only sent one message today ,why is she getting this message?

I use yahoo through OUTLOOK and am having no problem. Could this be a server issue , i have scanned for both spyware and viruses and found nothing.

While the post above has a very informative response :p, I agree it's something on their end. It clearly states

"User is over the limit for messages allowed to be sent in a single day"

Probably resolved by now, as the limit is probably daily. Apparently even if you contact Yahoo they won't know what is going on - but you should be able to send via webmail as Zidran over there pointed out ;)

I waited about an hour and tried to send it again and it sent no problem. I could also send no problem using the webmail.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
