when I try to send a message from my hotmail account I get the following error message…

“An error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded:  554 5.2.0 STOREDRV.Submission.Exception:OutboundSpamException; Failed to process message due to a permanent exception with message WASCL UserAction verdict is not None. Actual verdict is
HipNotify. OutboundSpamException: WASCL UserAction verdict is not None. Actual verdict is HipNotify. [Hostname=LO3P123MB3036.GBRP123.PROD.OUTLOOK.COM]. Please check the message and try again.”

This is followed by an email from *** Email address is removed for privacy *** ….

“To continue sending messages, please

This helps us stop automated programs from sending junk email.

Thanks for your help and patience!

This happens even though I am signed in to both hotmail & outlook.

What is going on??
