Rather,this problem could be because of settings in the email client which are not compatible with the SMTP or outgoing email server. The rationale behind these settings is generally to reduce the amount of spam messages. This problem can be overcome quickly by adjusting the settings of the email client to access the SMTP server of the organization or internet service provider.

This may be due to an incorrect configuration of the outgoing server (SMTP).
