Problem with a Guardian.co.uk recipe

I've been using a supplied Calibre recipe for the Guardian.co.uk for some months and until the beginning of the week it worked well. However since Monday deliveries to my Kindle have been failing - please see the error message I've been receiving below. I use four other recipes to download material and they're still fine.

I would be very grateful for any help with this.

Andrew, UK

calibre, version 0.8.33

Many thanks for replying so quickly. I've read the FAQ and I'm not quite sure what to do. I'm using Gmail already and as I mentioned all the other recipes are working OK. Is there something simple I can try to fix this? Thanks again.

See the line

error: [Errno 10061] No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it


That means the server you are using to send mail (presumably gmail) is blocking you. It may be because the file you are trying to send is too large, or for some other reason, no way to know.

OK, many thanks again for your help. I am using Gmail so perhaps if I use another email service that will resolve the problem.
