  • You might have already sent out too many (400 approx.) emails which is around the daily limit to send an email for a day, try sending the next day.
  • If you are using a third party mail application then try to log on to the webmail and try to send it from the webmail.

Are you using a mail application to check your emails?

If you are using a mail application like inbuilt MAIL by Windows 10 or Mail on a MAC computer or Mozilla Thunderbird or any other third party application to access your email check the incoming and outgoing server settings.

The simplest thing you could do is, remove the email account from the application and add it put it back on to the application. This solves most of the problems.

But before you remove the account, make sure you take a backup of folders and files saved. Data once gone is gone.
