outgoing email error (0x800CCC61) OB703



Today, one of our clients (who is on a DOT account), received a message which Outlook flagged as spam/potentially malicious. He didn't open any attachments.


Ever since then, his Outlook has a constant error at bottom right:


! Task ' - Sending' reported error (0x800CCC61): "Your outgoing (SMTP) email server has reported an internal error. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP). The server responded: 558 5A204A960D1AA6 Message content rejected due to suspected spam. OB703


He is able to send and receive all other email fine, except when we press send/receive, it tries to send 1 email. There are no emails in the outbox.


We have run a Webroot scan with no issues found.


Help appreciated.
