sending emails but receiving

Asus Laptop with intel pentium processor...

Hello there
Suddenly a new problem showed up this morning. It has to do with a computer which sent emails with attachments allright until yesterday. But from today, whenever I want to send an email with an attachment I get the following error. It is strange because if I send the same message from another computer in the same LAN, it does send the message successfully.
The first computer which fails in sending the email has win vista and is using windows live mail to send emails.

The second computer which sends messages successfully even today has Windows XP and uses Microsft Outlook Express to send emails.

The problem with the first computer comes up when you try to send a message and instead of the message being sent you get an error which translated into English would be something like:

Unkown error: Subject ", Account: "AccountName'. Server: "", Protocol: STMP, Servers' reply: '554 Sorry message looks like SPAM to me'. Port:25, Security (SSL): No, Server's error: 554, Error number: 0x800CCCGF

In conclusion, I am getting this error which seems to be related to the email server's spam filter policy. Nonetheless, this seems strange since there is a computer which can send emails with attachments from the same account without problems.
I have to add that both computers have avast installed.

thosecars82, sounds like an overzealous spam filter (at your ISP). Change it's stringency?
If you can't do that, perhaps imbed the attachment (maybe use a different font/color?) in the mail rather than send it as an attachment?

Might this be caused because of a real time antivirus spam filter instead of by ISP filter?

thosecars82, I wouldn't think so as those filters are usually only concerned with incoming stuff, but ... Simple enough to adjust sensitivity or disable filters to find out.
