Problems with Yahoo Mail and Outlook Express (Over the Limit?)

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: '', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '521 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.
Thread title modified.

Please be more specific with your thread titles.
Maybe one of the recipients is over the limit for messages allowed to be sent in a single day
Not the problem, I tried sending a small email to my self and it wouldnt send that either?
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.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
