HOW TO FIX – Error “Domain exceeded the max defers and failures per hour” [STEP BY STEP]☑️
Today in this tutorial you will learn how to FIX Error: Domain has exceeded the max defers and failure per hour.
If you are receiving an error similar to “Domain example.com has exceeded the max defers and failures per hour (5/5 (100%)) allowed“ in an email bounce back, it means that outgoing email from your domain has triggered a rule in the server that will stop any further email from going out of the server. This happens when a domain account sends out emails that either fail or get deferred. If the number of failures or defers is greater than the server limit, no further emails are allowed.
Let us watch out the video to quickly learn how to resolve this issue. Take care of every step so that you don’t miss anything.
Now let us know the symptoms of the error:
Sending emails from your account fails
You receive a Non-delivery report with an error similar to mentioned above
The major cause of the problem:
Your account has exceeded the allowed number of bounced messages per hour and as a result, your email sending rights have been blocked
The blockage is temporary hence you can send again mails within an hour
The blockage is necessary to prevent your email account form from getting permanently blocked by third party mailing servers and spam list
How can I fix this?
This error is derived from an hourly monitoring system, where any blocked domains are allowed to send emails again at the top of every hour. For example, if you received this error at 2:45pm, the block will release at 3:00pm and the domain will be able to send emails out once more.
