Re: Error: delivery temporarily suspended: lost connection with mta5.am0.yahoodns.net

Hi

A  friend who has a Optusnet account received the following error when trying to respond to my yahoo email.  My friend is also experiencing this error with other yahoo addresses.

 

Now my friend is not getting any error messages at all as we have tested the sending a email to my yahoo account via her mobile phone and their apple mac laptop and I did not receive the emails.

 

I contacted Optus and they could not see any issues.  I feel it is yahoo's DNS server protocols that is causing the block.

 

This is the error she is getting.

@RZ7

We've looked into the error you received and ran some maintenance on the mailbox to help resolve it.

If you keep seeing this error message, it means your mailbox has been getting an unusually high number of emails recently. At this point, the best thing to do would be to unsubscribe from mailing lists to keep the number of incoming emails down. It may also help to wait a few hours before sending any emails from the account.

 

While we do offer 1 TB storage in Yahoo Mail, we also have safeguards in place to ensure that people do not abuse the service in keeping with our Terms of Service.

Apologies, I wasn't clear. The maintenance performed should resolve your issue. I know your contacts were the ones receiving a delivery error.

 Hi 

Thank for your help.  The issue has not been resolved.  My friend now is not even getting a message stating the email has not been delivered.

 

She can send emails to Gmail accounts but not to yahoo accounts.  She receives emails from yahoo account but cannot send out.

 

looks like DNS service rules are doing something

 

I contacted Optus and they ran some tests and could not find anything.  They sent me an email and all worked fine.

 

Please advise  thank you

@RZ7

If your friend is experiencing the error when sending to other Yahoo email addresses, then the problem lies on his side or with his mail provider.

Their mail admin will have to contact our postmaster department here.
