I am unable to send and receive emails from on

Customer Question

I am unable to send and receive emails from on line email address. This is the message I receive:
Diagnostic information for administrators:
Generating server: ***@******.***
Remote Server returned '533 5.4.0 Your message seems to have triggered our junk email filters. Could you edit your message and try again?'

Please help, this is really frustrating and taking up so much time trying to work out why.

Hi there, my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today.

Expert:  Wes replied 1 year ago.

Does this occur with all messages you send? Try sending something simple to your self like

To: <your email>

Subject: Test


and see what happens.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have tried that and the message appears that I forwarded with my enquiry
Expert:  Wes replied 1 year ago.

has your account been compromised recently? If you are just sending out a simple test message there should be nothing that should trip the outgoing spam filters... which could mean Microsoft has flagged your account as sending spam. Do you do high volume e-mailing from this account?

Hi,Not that I am aware of....what do you mean by compromised? I do not believe tnhat my account has been hacked or anything suspicious like that. I also cannot send an email from another address to this address although it does appear in the sent box. I have never until yesterday had emails from my employer go into Junk email either, so there is definitely a change of some sort but I do not know what or why.

In answer to your other question, no i don't send high volumes of messages from this account.
Expert:  Wes replied 1 year ago.

Try going to this web page, log in with your outlook online details and complete the verification steps.

Then try sending the test e-mail again and see if it goes through. You should receive the message you sent to yourself without the '533 5.4.0 Your message seems to have triggered our junk email filters.

Also, go into your signature settings.... click on the gear icon in the upper right, then options, then on the left side of the screen click email signature under Mail>Layout

make sure there's nothing wierd in the signature box.

Hi,The same error has occurred....I did actually try the verification steps earlier with no joy. My email signature has nothing odd/weird that I am aware of.
Expert:  Wes replied 1 year ago.

You are trying to do this from the actual website correct? Not through an e-mail program?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I used the link you gave me...I am not very technical so don't know what you mean by email programme
Expert:  Wes replied 1 year ago.

No, I mean when you try to send the e-mails... are you using a web browser and going to the website, or are you using a dedicated e-mail program like outlook or windows mail

Are you able to offer any further advice for rectifying this issue?
Expert:  Wes replied 1 year ago.

I can't provide additional advice until you answer the last question I asked you.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I am using the web browser, I type in and then open the mailbox with my username and password. Sorry, I only just got your earlier message
Expert:  Wes replied 1 year ago.

okay. This may be something account-specific that you'll have to contact microsoft about or we can try to do a remote assistance session where I can try to check into it by remote-controlling your PC.
