Who can suspend your email account?

Kathleen Atkins

Your ISP can suspend your email service, Lounge member deanvet has learned, for sending too much mail.

He knew that from previous suspensions by his ISP, but the most recent incident confused him. As he explained in the Non-Outlook Email forum, his ISP agreed to restore his service but then told him his software and Microsoft prevented the return of his Send function. His fellow Loungers analyzed the situation and suggested a different reason for the interruption of service.
