I can access and send email via webmail. This is then received in the webmail inbox and in Outlook.
Changed SPAM setting in webmail from ‘Move message to Spam folder’ to ‘Turn off all SPAM filtering’.
NOTE: On my Android phone – which uses IMAP, all settings have been accepted but emails sit in the Outbox and will not send. Have deleted and re-set up account to ensure that settings are correct, and accepted (especially since password was also changed). Will happily sync emails in inbox and sent folders.
Review the amount of emails you've sent in the last 24 hour period. If using Outlook Thunderbird etc, this should be no more than 100 emails. If using webmail e.g. via IE, Chrome, Firefox the limit is 500 emails.
Re: 453 Too Many recipients (VM502) - with Outlook logging
There was nothing wrong with the server
453 is a very specific error code and is a response to emails being sent to too many recipients. The VM502 indicates that this was a breach in the amount of recipients in the last 24 hours.
The fact that you can now send again is because the timeout limit has expired.
Bear in mind that Virgin counts the total number rcpt to: commands per user.
Say I send 1 email with 99 recipients and another with a single recipient for a total of 100 recipients. If that breaches Virgin's 24 hour limit, any further emails even to a single recipient are refused with the above error. Note that the numbers I've given are as an example only.
Virgin don't publish their 24 hour or hourly limits - but they have said the following.
Limits are increased if you authenticate - which as I can see from the logs you do. Limits are decreased if you are sending from outside the Virgin Media network - particularly if you happen to be abroad and sending from a range known to be used by spammers.
