Hi @RaymondHendry, welcome to the forum, and sorry you are getting this error when trying to send emails.

If you try to send the email from webmail does it send ok or do you get the same error?

cheers

John

Hi John

Webmail didn't work. I'm assuming that there has been an Outlook update and our servers haven't been updated?

Hi @RaymondHendry 

Thanks for posting back.

I am sorry you're seeing that error code when trying to send emails.  Are you using a VPN by any chance?  If you are, can you disconnect from the VPN and try sending the email(s) again please?

Let me know how you get on.

Thanks,

Robbie

No. I am not using a VPN. The issue has only occurred in the past 7 days. Prior to then, I was able to email the contacts without any issues.  I have spoken with the company and they are unaware of any issues at their end.  

Thanks
