What are you using to send your mail?

Re: Message not sent. Server replied: Requested action not taken: insufficient

hi, thanks for replies.  I am now able to send e mails again, and receive.  I did actually copy the whole message for the post header but it didn't all paste here.  I use PlusNet for my e mail and as I said i had not been able to send anything for a couple of days to any e mail address.  I googled the message and funnily enough didn't get any exact hits, but the nearest link that came up was for computers on a domain and mentioned something about a server being shut down because of spam so did wonder if that is why my e mails weren't being sent.  It's interesting that no one else had the issue.  Anyway all well at the moment.
