After many years of being able to include Flickr hyperlinks in my emails I now find that I can no longer do so and get the 553 error message. It's only happening with Flickr hyperlinks and only on my laptop with Windows 10 using webmail. The problem is not there using my ipad with the Bt app.
I contacted BT technical support and their immediate solution was bizarre enough to be funny. They said I should always introduce a space within the hyperlink so that it's not recognized as a hyperlink. That got me quite annoyed with the result that the case got elevated to Level 2 and a friendly Bt person called me within an hour. She said it's not an unknown issue and it will be sorted within a couple of days.
Has anyone else had this happen with a particular hyperlink? It's annoying because if there is a Flickr hyperlink anywhere in an email it won't get sent but also anyone that sends me a Flickr hyperlink gets an error too and I don't get their email.
It's only an issue with my Bt email.
Solved! Go to Solution.
