HI I'm new to this and hope you can help. I'm receiving a message when I try to send a message through Outlook Express. Error 551 something about I do not have permission to send a message to this person. This happened after sending back and forth a t least 4 messages then that error message pops up. What's that about and how can I stop it? Thanks

Error 551 is caused by the people you're sending email to having blocked you.
This is usually not the specific person who you're contacting, but the people who operate the email service that the other person is using.
Typically this is done due to problems of excessive junk email from people connected to your provider, however sending too much mail in too short a time could also produce this error.

'error 551' often means the email provider of the person you are trying to send mail to has 'blocked' all emails from your ISP's mail server because it has been reported that a high volume of junk mail (spam) is being sent from that server (not necessarily sent by you, but sent by others who use the same mail service as you).
