Can anyone help me?
Sometimes I can send up to about four emails and then I get an error saying "Sender Denied (TT608)" Am I not the sender? Is there a limit as to how many emails you can send at any one time? Sometimes I can only send one email and then I get this same message. Prior to this I would get an error saying I was trying to send to too many recipients even if I was only sending it to one or two people.
I have to save the draft and then try in an hour or two which isn't good if I am trying to have a 'conversation' with someone!
I must say I'm having so many problems with TalkTalk I am really tempted to switch my email address!

Hi csturgess, have you reset the password for the mailbox recently and scanned all your devices as suggested?

Are you still getting an error message of TT608 Sender denied?
Is the incoming spam recent or going on for a long time? It's quite possible that some unwanted mail has carried a malware payload directly or indirectly to your computer.
You should scan devices with Internet security software like TalkTalk Online Defence / Malwarebytes to detect and remove any password grabbing malware.
Your email address is obviously known to spammers. The TT608 error message indicates that there are multiple logins to your mailbox. So, if your mailbox is compromised and being used to send spam then that's why the system is rate limiting to prevent the spread of spam.

No it hasn't helped at all! Today I can't even send the first email I need to send!
Unless SOMEONE can give me a solution that will fix this problem (and all the spam I keep getting) unfortunately I am going to be left with no choice but to leave talktalk. 😞

I'd definitely troubleshoot by signing out of the mailbox on the mobile apps / devices. Sometimes a mobile security software app will automatically set up a VPN connection which is good when you want to use public wi-fi. But in that case I'd definitely sign out of other devices first.
Bear in mind that when the mailbox has been rate-limited for spam protection it can take up to 24 hours for the rate limiter to restore normal sending.
If you have any concerns or see evidence that your mailbox has been compromised then change your email password after scanning for potential malware to ensure the device itself is not compromised.

I primarily use my account on my laptop using Firefox but I also have it open on my phone (android) and my ipad. From what you are saying I guess I should close it on the other devices when I'm using my laptop? Sometime though I can send from those devices when I can't send from my laptop.

The TT608 error usually means the system has detected there are multiple logins from different IP addresses in geographically distanced locations. This often indicates a typical 'spam' fingerprint for a hijacked email account used to send spam.
As a precautionary measure your mailbox has not been locked but severely rate limited to frustrate a spammer that would lose interest in a mailbox that they couldn't use for bulk spam.
How are you using your email account i.e. devices / email software / apps and connecting from which network if not TalkTalk's? Connecting via a VPN and concurrently via a direct network connection could give rise to the detection of multiple concurrent logins from different locations.
