Solution: ‘Message Blocked – Your message to @gmail.com has been blocked’

Solution for Gmail error: Message Blocked - Your message to @gmail..com has been blocked. See technical details below for more information.

Recently, a lot of Gmail users have filed the complaint about Message Blocked error in Gmail community forum. However, the forum pro user (or Guru’s) aren’t unable to answer the exact reason behind this block. While navigating through a couple of thread I came to know the reason why exactly the message is being rejected and how to avoid such situations.

Basically, the Gmail response is message rejected. That means, the Google mail itself aborted the message sending actions to avoid uncertain situations.

Why Gmail Message Blocked?

I’ve outlined the possible reason why the Google Mail message is being blocked. The most common mistakes are basically while entering the email address of the recipient.

  1. Incorrect Email Address.
  2. Dot or period at end of email ID.
  3. Spelling mistake or error.
  4. Spacing the email addresses.

This errors would generally bounce back your sent email, however, continuously sending this mailer to these unavailable mail address could possibly result to message rejection and blocking.

The other factors that are also being considered are to avoid spammers and the Google started blocking those emails as well.

  1. Sending bulk mailer in Cc and Bcc – strict indication of spam.
  2. Too many suspicious links that are being continuously marked as spam by recipients.
  3. Cascading forms and other links to collect the user’s personal data.
  4. Recipients are marking your email as spam.

How to avoid Message Blocked error?

There are few ways that would help in avoid this situation:

  • Very first thing is to check the recipient email address are correct without any error or mistakes as mentioned above. If you receive any no email ID exist bounce back, then its better to remove the email address form contact list to avoid re-sending the email again.
  • It not advisable to send bulk emails to Cc or Bcc, rather create a Google group or Yahoo group including all the email addresses and send the email in one shot.
  • It’s strictly prohibited to collect any personal information using email in any mode (forms, website links, etc.). Google algorithm is smart enough to catch the spammers and block them permanently.
  • Lastly, if the email is continually blocked, then wait for at least 24 to 48 hours. Also, precheck if there is an issue with mailing server that might be also causing the blocker. If you feel that something isn’t working intended, then reporting the error to Gmail team would be the best bet.

Hope this help with the smooth function of Gmail, you can read more about rejected mail here. Cheers!

    Now i have this problem don’t know to send mail using this

    • Hi Subashini,

      I understand your concern. I’d suggest to check if you’re able to send message to any other email ID (other than @gmail.com) so that it would confirm your email ID is not blacklisted (or considered as a spam). I’d also suggest to carefully follow the instruction mentioned in second half of the article. I believe this should resolve the issue.

      I know it’s quite annoying to face this issue. If you continue facing the issue, then consider upgrading to (premium gmail version with additional benefits) or sign up with some other mail service provider(like Microsoft Outlook or Yahoo Mail).

    Hello there โ€“ย I discovered that the reason my emails had been getting blocked was because my site got hacked and I had been linking to the site in my signature line. As soon as I realized that, I took out the link. Will this lift the blocking that Google has on my account, or do I need to take additional steps to help unblock my emails from going out?

    • Hey Mickelle, thanks for dropping here.

      I believe your website is still hacked. I tried visiting but showing as malicious website. I first suggest to secure your website as that would even lead to permanent ban. Also, regarding the email ID, I would suggest to wait for a some time (a week or so) to get unblocked. If it continued to be blocked, you may reach out to Google Mail team as suggested in article.

      Best, Kushal

    I am trying to send an email with a 1.3MB attachment via bulk gmail. Have not had problems in past and nothing has changed. But over half are bouncing back as being blocked. What can I do to fix this?

    • Hey Phyllis,

      Thanks for dropping by. The Google is very stringent as it strictly not allow the spamming through it’s free Gmail service. Generally, sending the bulk email is considered to be spammy by system. This might be a possible reason for blocking your sent emails.

      What I’d suggest here is to create a Google Group and add all the email ID into the group and send it in one go; Rather than sending a bulky Gmail to individual.

      Best,
      Kushal

  5. Monica says:

    I created an new email address through gmail and imported over my contacts/group to the new one. The email addresses I BCC’d are all emails I have BCC’d before with no issues with my old email. Why now would it block them? Is it because I have a new email address?

    I am having some problem about gmail is being locked -Why Gmail Message Blocked?

    Please help me ?

    • Hey Tammy,

      Can you please share more details about the email you’ve sent?
      The number of To & Cc IDs?
      The number of Bcc IDs?
      Any links or attachment in your mail?
      Was it a promotional/offer email?

      I’d strongly suggest following the set of rules mentioned above which comply with Google ToS. I know it’s quite annoying to get “Message Blocked” auto-reply, however, if we make a fair usage of mailing service I think it shouldn’t arouse any problem.

      Thank you!

    This doesn’t apply to any of the email I sent or many of the other users complaining about being blocked. I send ZERO bulk email, my messages are almost completely TEXT only, my machines are free of malware, I’m sending to valid email addresses(I’m replying 9/10 times), and my email is evening being blocked between my own GMAIL accounts.

    Something is very wrong with GMAILs SMTP servers.

  9. Bob says:

  12. Alan Smith says:

    Your Google Group suggestion is great but I’m using outlook to mail out 1800 newsletters to our condo. I don’t send more than 50 at once but mydilema is the condo wants me to use bcc to protect members E-Mail but GMAIL doesn’t let me do that. But the contacts are only in OUTLOOK which won’t import to the GOOGLE GROUP so I would have to enter 1800 E-Mail addresses by hand. Any thoughts?
