This morning, for the first time ever (never before), I received the above
message, aftre having sent maybe 4-5 emails in less than 24 hours. In the
past, I sent out more emails and never got that message...I am referring to
hotmail.
ANY HELP ABOUT THIS ISSUE? Thanks

Then, for the first time ever (never before) I am asked to enter my psword
every time, even if I checked the box Save my email and my password.
Before I did not have to do this. ANY HELP ON WHY THINGS HAVE CHANGED?
Thanks.

I would imagine it is your e-mail provider that has the limit. Often I
find these things work themselves out after a time.

There is one bad possibility I can think of. It could be a virus that
has been sending out e-mail from your machine. I would suggest some serious
security scans.

Do you have "ZoneAlarm Security Suite" or similar? It has an E-mail security
setting that detects outgoing message counts to prevent your computer
from being used as a SpamBot. You can turn it on or off and set it to do
whatever you want it to.

Hotmail-specific issues should be discussed in a more appropriate
forum:
http://www.microsoft.com/communitie...fault.aspx?dg=microsoft.public.msn.discussion

In a pinch, you can always send via a free Gmail account, which even allows
you to change the 'From' address to @hotmail.com.

Which email client program are you using when it fails to accept the password?

So is your e-mail provider to remain a secret? Are we to guess it's
your Hotmail account? Could be a different account than the one you
chose to advertise here to the spambots that roam newsgroups to harvest
e-mail addresses (but feel lucky that most scan only the headers and not
the body of posts where you gave out your e-mail address).

Gmail allows 500 mails per day when using their webmail interface. 100
mails per day if using an e-mail client accessing your account via POP
or IMAP. I'm not sure but I believe Hotmail has a maximum of 100 mails
per 12 hours (which goes up as you gain reputation for not spamming -
but Hotmail doesn't divulge its actual anti-spam quotas or how you
accrue reputation points). That is measure by the number of recipients,
not how many messages you passed to their mail server. If you specify
multiple recipients per e-mail then they have to send out that many
e-mails. So if the limit is 100 mails per day then 10 e-mails with more
than 10 recipients for each e-mail would exceed the quota. Okay, you
sent out 4 to 5 e-mails but how many recipients were specified for each
one? What was the total number of recipients for all those e-mails?

If YOU only sent less than half a dozen e-mails today and the total
number of recipients is less that the value shown in the rest of the
error message then you better start scanning for malware that is using
your host to spew spam. Or go change the password on your account
(using the webmail interface to it) because someone might have hacked it
and is currently abusing it.

This is an anti-abuse quota in your e-mail account. Someone (you,
hacker, mailer trojan on your host) has exceeded this quota.

afaik...The email counts too. ie..The 10 emails each with 9 recipients would equal 100.

Re: You have reached maximum number of email sent in a 24-hr perio

Dearest all..
I am not a computer whiz, so I thank you for all your technical replies,
most of which I don't understand.
All I can say is that even today, well after the 24-hour period, I cannot
send out email to 1 person only. I still get the same message "You have
reached...bla bla". Also, what I was able to do until before yesterday
(clicking on mail icon from Live IM Messenger, and get my mail right away)
now Hotmail is asking EVERY time for my password, even if it was always saved
until before yesterday.
I have IE7...and another thing different is that when I clic on IE icon, now
it shows (as home page) www.msn.com/?wl=true, instead of www.msn.com (like
before), and, before showing www.msn.com/?wl=true, it shows an errore msg:
Error. Runtime error 217 at 00421334.....I have NO idea what that means.
Should I take this PC to repair???

Re: You have reached maximum number of email sent in a 24-hr perio

Gary, thank you...I don't know what you ask..When I clic on Hotmail, it has
already my email address but the pswrd bos is empty, and it asks me to insert
it. This is something I did not have to do until before yesterday, when
everything was running smoothly.

But they e-mail (via DATA command) that you give their mail server
doesn't specify a recipient itself. It's the data between your client
and their mail server. Not until they send a copy should the recipient
count be affected. 10 RCPT-TO commands followed by 1 DATA command
should count as 10 e-mail *sent*, not 11 e-mails (since the DATA
command doesn't fully define the e-mail as would be sent by the mail
host, and all headers in the message transferred by the DATA command
are *not* used to deliver the message).

The real point is that the user might think they only sent 4 or 5
e-mails but if they have a large number of recipients (I think 50 is the
max for Hotmail) then they could easily surpass their daily e-mail count
quota. When they say there is an daily e-mail count quota, it really is
a daily recipient count quota.

I'm not sure what is the real e-mail count quota used by Hotmail. Often
e-mail providers don't want that info released since it gives spammers
some parameters by which they can configure their mailer trojan or bulk
mail client to circumvent those quotas. They mention gaining reputation
points to let you send more e-mails but they don't define the criteria
on which to earn those reputation points (because spammers might use an
account in a behaved manner to accrue reputation points and then abuse
the account). Somewhere someone mentioned 100 was the limit but it does
seem a tad low. Of course, 500 sound okay for Gmail until you find out
that's when using the webmail interface and it's only 100 when using a
local e-mail client using POP/IMAP to your Gmail account.

And what was the aggregate count of all recipients across those "4-5
emails"? Did it exceed 100? That's the daily recipient quota that I've
heard.

Microsoft doesn't divulge it in their online help so I can't say
positively that it isn't higher, plus they mention gaining reputation
points to send to more recipients per day but again aren't specific on
what is their algorithm. I suspect the daily recipient quota is higher
for paid accounts but again there's no info in their web help pages.

The online help says to wait 12 hours to see if the problem clears up.
If it doesn't then contact them at:

If you attempt to log on to Hotmail via mail.live.com are you asked in addition to username/pw to enter a string of characters
matching those in a picture to confirm access and further use ? Y/N

Have you waited 12-24 hours since the last occurrence ? Y/N

How many messages were included in each or in total for those 4-5 emails.? #'s/#

It has been "up" for considerably longer than two weeks.
