I have an Apple and prefer using Apple mail. Suddenly all emails that I send to TDS addresses are rejected. I can send the same emails using the Xfinity email but just not the Apple mail. Other addresses on Apple mail go through fine. Apple says it is a Comcast problem, but they refuse to call me back to help after checking that correct ports, etc. are being used. Any ideas?
Thank you for your reply---below is a copy of the email I receive from email@example.com
I have x'd out the recipient's email address

OK the error message is telling you that there is something being detected as spam by either the Comcast spam filtering system or the spam filters of the recipient's email program. Call Comcast security and see if they can look at it and spot the problem--------------

That rejection is from the TDS system. They think something in your message is spam. I'm going to see if I can find someone to talk to there about what might be going on.
Well, sometimes that works, sometimes it doesn't. They suggested that your intended recipient at TDS open a ticket.
This is the message their MTAs are returning: "5.7.1 [P4] Message blocked due to spam content in the message."

Yes, one of them is repeated. That's just two messages that were being attempted at the same instant. If you need more information that we could provide, please let me know. I'm sorry I can't do more, but this is the way that TDS requested to handle this. If you don't get anywhere, please let me know, and I'll see if I can find another channel to reach them.
Thank you for your reply. I had wondered if it might be TDS and called them, but they said they couldn't help me as i was no longer a TDS customer! I will copy your message and ask a friend if she will call TDS and see if they can resolve the issue.
