This is an issue that comes up occasionally and there is a simple solution . . .
Some servers have a limit on the number of checks per hour per IP address.
That is, a limit on the number of times your mail program can ask to retrieve mail from the servers.
If you hit this limit in any hour you’ll be locked out for the rest of the hour.
This is done to prevent the servers becoming clogged with email requests.
And . . .
It helps providers to offer hosting at reasonable prices.
More importantly . . .
It also helps to stop the misuse and abuse of email accounts by hackers and spammers.
There is a simple solution:
This problem often occurs when mail programs are set to automatically check for emails and the interval is too small.
It can also occur if you hit the SEND/RECEIVE button too often on your email program.
So . . .
The solution is to disable the automatic checking for new emails, or set it to check less often.
Remember that the more computers that automatically or manually check the mail servers, the quicker you will hit the limit.
If your business needs to check email more often, then you will need to talk with your website people about upgrading the server plan.
Well, that is quite simple really!
