To fix the error, contact the SMTP service provider you use.

SMTP Error 451

Requested action aborted — Local error in processing

A remote antispam filter might reject your request. Also, your internet provider may be overloaded, or too many emails were sent through your SMTP relay. The next attempt may be successful if the error still occurs — contact your SMTP provider.

Usually, the recipient's spam-filter sends this error for policy reasons, labeling your email as spam.

You can eliminate this error by asking a recipient to whitelist you.
