Known causes are:
Loss of connection to the remote socket
A connection can reset due to a timeout or a reboot of the remote system.
A duplicate IP address on your network
A misconfigured firewall or proxy server
A firewall or proxy server may block the connection.
Lost of packets or an aborted transfer
If the remote server stops responding, or if too many packets are dropped, or if the remote system aborts a transfer, it can cause a 10054 error.

Or simply the webserver on the other side is rejecting the mail

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

You're trying to send a massive amount of information through the socket, so the output buffer of the system becomes full.
You're trying to send data through the socket to the remotehost, but the remotehost input buffer is full (because its receiving data slower than you're sending it).
