What To Do When You Get Time Warner Cable Mail Error: 550? [Proven Study]

At times, users receive unwanted emails and spams from unknown email addresses that usually come with viruses. To prevent further spread of such viruses, Time Warner Cable (TWC) rejects their transmission. So, whenever someone attempts to send an infected email containing a virus, he/she gets an error message 550.

ERROR: 550 appears when the email message contains a virus. Most of the time, users are not aware that their computer system is infected. This gives the opportunity to the spammers to send spams to virus-infected computer systems. Therefore, whenever a TWC mail user attempts to send a virus-containing email via one of the outbound residential SMTP servers, he/she gets a message. This message states that his/her message has been rejected by TWC server.

Follow the recommended steps to clean your computer if it is infected by any virus:

  • At first, scan your entire computer for the presence of any virus, Trojan or security vulnerabilities.
  • Next, turn all unnecessary services off from the machine. For instance, Windows Messaging.
  • Ensure that you have all necessary and relevant security patches up to date for the operating system of your computer.
  • Turn off the file as well as print sharing services on your device.
  • Always make use of a genuine antivirus software and ensure that its software is also up to date.
  • Try to use a firewall.
  • Always be attentive when you enter the login details like passwords and other sensitive information. Make sure not to share any personal details, including login ids and passwords until you are sure with whom you are sharing the credentials.

Immediately install a firewall and anti-virus software on your computer system. Many times, users are not aware that their computer system is infected. And, they may send an infected email that may include a virus or Trojan. Also, there are chances that your computer may send out emails without your consent or knowledge when your system is infected with the virus.


Sometimes, users receive another error message:

ERROR: 5.7.1:550 Outbound Mail Refused

TWC mail users get this message when a large volume of email is coming from their account. This may happen due to the presence of a virus on the computer system. To avoid other customers getting infected, TWC mail network temporarily limits a users' ability to send email using TWC mail servers.

If you are facing the same problem, try to install a firewall or antivirus software on your computer system, and scan your entire system thoroughly. Remove the virus or Trojans (if any) present on your system and reattempt sending the emails.
