There can be various reasons for getting error code 475 in your Yahoo Mail account. The error code 475 generally means that Yahoo has detected some suspicious activity on your account and has temporarily blocked you from sending emails. This error code occurs mainly because of the following reasons:
- You have sent a lot of emails to a large number of contacts in a short time.
- You have sent duplicate information in your email repetitively.
- You have sent 1 or more email messages to a large number of recipients.
- You have a message stuck in the Outbox folder of the Yahoo Mail app.
