Windows Live Mail stopped sending

by hikergene113 / December 5, 2012 11:13 PM PST

I am using Windows Live Mail in Windows 7 and after sending out some email this morning, it stopped working. I get this error message:

The message could not be sent because the server rejected the sender's email address. The sender's email address was 'XXXXXX@XXXX'. [real email address deleted]
Subject 'gg'
Server Error: 452
Server Response: 452 4.7.0 [F12] Exceeded sending limits.
Server: ''
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC78
Protocol: SMTP
Port: 587
Secure(SSL): No

At first, since it says "exceeded sending limits" I thought it was a problem with my ISP, but after calling them and sucessfully emailing using the web based email, it now appears to be a Live Mail problem. I have double checked my settings and they have not changes.

I know of no fix to Windows Live email apps.

It pains some users but I seem to be helping them move to Thunderbird. I have yet to find good Windows Live support.

I was able to run a repair through Control Panel; Programs and Features. Everything is working fine now.
