I saw the post about similar issues and so I'm posting here as requested looking for support. Essentially, any email I try and send with my signature is bouncing because for some reason, the outbound filter thinks it's spam.
As a further update, weirdly, I can send this link to my Virgin Media account, and it'll turn up in my inbox just fine. But I can't send it from it, because it thinks it's spam.
Any advice would be hugely appreciated. The full error message is:
An error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded: 5.7.0 SPAM Content Found (VM603) crwLmi5chI8uBcrwLmJ5NB. Please check the message and try again.
The email is literally just my signature, although I have also tried writing more just in case that's what's triggering the filter. Seemingly, the thing that's causing the problem is the link to my website.
Issue has been flagged to the forum team; be aware it can take them a few hours / days to respond. Whilst waiting consider trying the following in webmail:
send email causing issue to invalid email address firstname.lastname@example.org
post send error message here to help with identification of false positive cause, for example:
Message could not be sent to the following recipients: [email@example.com] (554 - 554 5.2.0 SMTP602 Message contains Spam Content ;id=csnvmNjICC3occsnvm0Cn4;sid=csnvmNjICC3oc;mta=smtp1.tb;d=20211019;t=102135[CET];ipsrc=172.25.160.150;
FYI the unique string ID helps with identification, i.e. csnvmNjICC3occsnvm0Cn4

That's right - without the signature it works fine. It seems to be a specific link in my signature it thinks is spam. In fact, if I get rid of the signature, but try and send an email with just that link in, it gives me the same error saying it's spam.
Does anyone know if there's a way to email Virgin tech support, rather than having to go the forum route? I've followed the instructions found here, https://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Email/Email-Spam-Content-Found-error-550-554/td-p/3229831, which say "You will be asked to provide our Forum Team with a full copy of the error message, and complete email headers from a recent bounced email, via Private Message", but as of yet that hasn't happened, so a full week after the problem started, I still can't send emails with my own website in them.
It feels like it'd make a lot more sense to be able to email someone so problems are dealt with in the order they come in, rather than having to try and catch the eye of mods on the forum?
