I have an account that normally works with my Outlook 360 account. All of a sudden I started getting the attached error message whenever I try to send an email. I went into Outlook Account Settings to confirm that the password hadn't been changed or corrupted, and when I hit "OK" the email goes through just fine. So my settings seem OK. 
What is causing this and what can I do to fix it?

What is the EXACT error message you are getting?

If such an error 
takes place while opening PST files, this might be a corruption case. I'm 
little sure about the corruption here as the user followed the things asked in 
the error with no luck. SCANPST.EXE, the Inbox Repair tool for MS Outlook, can 
play an important role in this situation. It can fix the PST files if they are 
corrupted. Sometimes it may fail if the files are severely corrupted. In such 
situation, some third-party PST repair tools can be useful.

I assume you are using Outlook to send and receive emails? What version of Outlook are you using? Or is then happening when you access your Office 365 email through Outlook Web Access in a browser?
