emails I'm trying to send are being blocked why?

December 7, 2014 at 02:08:03
Specs: Windows 7
the size of the message you are trying to send exceeds a temporary size limit of the server. The message was not sent; try to reduce the message size or wait some time and try again. The server responded: ... temporary failure.
Failure is not temporary and has been in place for + 24 hours

The temporary size limit may last for more than 24 hours. Why do you assume it's only for 24 hours? The error does not say it's only for 24 hours.

If the messages contain picture attachments, try zipping them up first, then send them.

I didn't assume that the error was for 24 hrs. Just that it has been in place for more than 24 hrs & it is annoying.
Needs to be fixed
Tks for your reply

You should contact the email provider to get details of the situation, what the size limit is, and when it will be resolved. You are likely to get a more informed response from them than from people here (who don't even know who your email provider is).

Mozilla Thunderbird is an email client, not a provider. Your email provider will be someone like GMail, HotMail, or your ISP. In the end they are the only people who know what the problem is and when it is likely to be solved.

"the size of the message you are trying to send exceeds a temporary size limit of the server"

What are you sending? Most likely there's an attachment & it's size is over their limit (whatever that is). If it's a photo, just reduce the size before you send it. If you don't know how, ask & someone will explain.

Unlikely but if you are not attaching a file then I suppose it could be that malware is doing so.

What are you sending, just text or large attachments? Often the upload limit is quite restricted so depending on the file type of any attachment it might be possible to compress (zip) it.

As others have said, this almost certain to be a server restriction so unless you are sending large emails only they can sort this out.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
