email sending problems

I am having intermittent trouble sending emails with and without attachments.

The following message comes up:

#4.4.5 Too many connections to this listener

Happening on 2 different macs running 2 different systems, 2 different email apps, same internet connection. Must be the connection I assume but speed check reads fine.

Any ideas what this error message means and what causes it. It has never appeared before?

Your error message is usually problems with the mail server - probably your ISP.

Are you on Tiscali / Talktalk?
They seem to be currently having problems...

Then, you have the opportunity to wait for them to get your email working again.

Buggers, thanks for the info.
It would appear with this sort of problem it’s more often than not the provider!
