Re: Is there a problem with sending email today?

To test, I just sent a message via the Plusnet email servers to a non-Plusnet account without issue, then replied back to the Plusnet servers, again without issue.
While not very definitive, it's working in and out for me.

Thanks Nibiru
The only difference my end is that I'm in a temporary location this week and accessing via a different WiFi network.  Receiving mail OK and have working FTP and access to a website I maintain.
Error message from Server
The message could not be sent because one of the recipients was rejected by the server. The rejected e-mail address was~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  Subject 'Connection success', Account: 'pop3.plus.net', Server: 'relay.plus.net', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '550 <ann@theoldpo.co.uk> recipient rejected - relay denied', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 550, Error Number: 0x800CCC79
Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity. Account: 'pop3.plus.net', Server: 'relay.plus.net', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F

Are you using authenticated SMTP for sending?  If you're not on the PN network you need to make sure that you email program sends your username and password.
