Welcome to the EMD forums rocky2469

Firstly, you really should remove those live email addresses, ie: edit your post so that the '@' sign reads AT and the reads DOT com DOT au, etc. Otherwise, they will be picked up by Google (and other search engines)and you could well receive a lot more spam than expected in future.

Secondly, a 5.2.2 error means 'mailbox full', ie: the recipient needs to delete some messages as their Inbox has reached its size quota and currently has no room to receive any more messages.

"Diagnostic-Code: smtp; 552 5.2.2 Over quota"

Are you sure you have not set up a 'forwarder' in the past so that any email sent to 'X' address (or a copy of) is then automatically sent to this problem address? It seems you may be automatically sending email there and have managed to fill the account, hence, it is rejecting mail.

Either way, if you have access to the address from which you're receiving the 5.2.2 error messages, log into it and delete some emails from it. Then, log into your other addresses and check if you have a setting somewhere which is sending a copy of your email to that address and decide whether or not you could turn this feature off or not.

It appears this is now the new web mail login page for that address:
I assume from your old email address that your user name is either: slmarci AT aapt DOT net DOT au (change AT to @ and DOT to .)
You now just have to try and remember your password, but even if you can't, there is a message to call them:
Unfortunately we can't change your password online, but you can change it by phoning us on 13 88 86.
Good luck!
