I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This is O365 recommendation for that error. Basically it seems that he user is being blocked because of sending spam. This will tell you how to unblock the sender

Terry WoodsIT GuruCommented:
If the user believes they haven't been sending spam themselves, it's possible that their PC has been compromised with malware. I've seen this happen when a user opened an unsafe pdf file in Adobe Reader (which has insecure settings by default) and the resulting malware seemed to be able send spam through the Offfice365 email account setup in Outlook on the computer.

I'm an email admin. How can I fix this?
The sending account may be compromised. You will need to:

Determine if the account is compromised. If the account is compromised, follow the steps in Responding to a Compromised Email Account in Office 365.

Go to the SCC Restricted Users page to unblock the account. After you unblock the account, the user should be able to resume sending messages within a few hours.

To help prevent future account compromises, follow the recommendations in Security best practices for Office 365.
