Primary Cox email address inaccessible through Outlook starting 1/10/18

Starting yesterday in the early evening Outlook began repeatedly prompting me for the password for my primary email address. I tried various fixes on the Windows side: Clearing credentials, repairing Office, rebooting, etc. I also verified I can log into the email address via Webmail.

I tried to do a repair on the account in Outlook and Outlook is throwing the following error:

We are having trouble connecting to your account. Verify the settings below and make changes if necessary.

The settings it refers to is simply the email name. I have another email account on the same installation of Outlook and they're both identical as far as email servers and ports. Not that that should matter as the email only started acting up yesterday.

  • Server error: '452 4.1.1 Recipient mailbox in maintenance please retry'

    That error code seems to be when you try to send more then 100 email messages. I don't know if it's at a time or a overall limit. Do you have a lot of email in your outbox waiting to send? If so, move it to another folder and slowly (10?) send them out.

    "The SMTP connection has exceeded the 100 email message threshold and was disconnected." See error codes here.
