Unable to Send Message: "To Prevent abuse....

Getting the error today and not sure why.   I have searched and many have had this issue and solved it.  But it doesn't say how to solve this.

@Captainmike

From the moment you removed your account from your phone. Hopefully, that was the cause of the issue.

In order to protect all users, we temporarily block sending on accounts that are flagged with spam-like or suspicious sending habits. If you're seeing "suspicious activity detected" or "account temporarily blocked from sending messages", you'll still have access to your mail and receive messages while you wait for the hold to expire.

 

Why an account is blocked for suspicious sending habits

Tips to avoid the "suspicious activity" error in the future

  • Try sending your email as plain text if it contains hyperlinks.
  • Don't send a large number of emails over a short period of time.
  • Try using Yahoo Groups if you regularly send an email to a large number of recipients.
  • Remove and re-add the account from any non-Yahoo Mail app that may be accessing it.

Yes I am getting the spam warning.

 

I have not been sending a lot of emails.   Have not been hacked lately, I know when I have been hacked as my spam folder will will up with bad addresses.   So I have no idea why this is happened.

@Captainmike

You might have a message stuck in the Outbox folder of your phone that's causing the issue. Remove your account from any mobile app and add it again.

I have deleted my email account on my phone.   I am unable to set it back up as it cannot verify the setting, which I assume is related to this issue.   So for now, no email setup that could be sending emails.
