Email error message

Likes # 0

Because of a recent problem I've been trying to send test emails to myself in Outlook Express. However they're not being sent but are going straight into my Outbox and won't send from there. I'm getting this error...."452 too many recipients received this hour". I've never seen this before, can anyone help?

Possibly your system thinks that it is sending spam. How many have you sent? Leave it for a few hours and see if it settles down.

Greetings Woolwell and thanks. I'm with Talk Talk and email interruptions are an all too frequent and regular occurrence, so I'm forever sending mail to myself, checking if it's back on. Never seen 452 before though and I've made about a dozen attempts. It started working about half an hour again, but it's playing up again now. I'm not aware of any spam filter, certainly never set one up.

" I'm forever sending mail to myself" - the problem with that is that Talktalk are likely to think that you are generating spam and you get the error 452 "too many recipients". Send/Receive will be an adequate enough check and you should be able to go to webmail.

Try setting up a yahoo or gmail account and send test e-mails from there to your talktalk account.

Thanks Borderview, seems like.....according to the forum (Not from Talk Talk, they've told us nothing so far!) it's connected with them moving their ex Tiscali customers across to the Talk Talk Servers. One problem follows another, never a dull moment (Or an uninterrupted service) with Talk Talk.

Yes, looks like a talktalk prob, do a google for:

talktalk email 452 Too many recipients received this hour

Thumbscrew, anecdotal reports from other ex-Tiscali users suggests that changing Outlook Express's outgoing mail server to smtp.talktalk.net fixes the problem.

Thanks all, yes changing the smtp as Secret-Squirrel states, has seemed to do the trick.....until their next outtage!! This solution by the way has come from another customer, nothing at all from Tiscali despite pleas for help posted on their forum. Avoid.
