After sending your campaign with YAMM, you receive a message from Google saying that your account has been blocked. Please read this article to know why.
Why did Google disable my account?
In an effort to fight spam and prevent abuse, Google will temporarily disable your account if it suspects an unusual activity with your account.
Unusual activities include (but is not limited to):
|Unusual activities||Explanations||To know more...|
|Sending many email with a new Gmail or G Suite account||Google carefully monitors usage on your account, specifically when it is a new one. Make sure to 'warm' up your account before sending a lot of emails. You can start sending a few emails first, and only to people you know to avoid your account to be blocked by Google.||Consult: 'Tips: How to avoid being blocked by Google or spam filters' to learn other tips to avoid spam|
|Receiving, deleting or downloading large amounts of mail via POP or IMAP (Apple Mail, Outlook etc.)||If you're getting an error message like 'Your Google account is temporarily disabled' or ‘Account temporarily locked down’, you should be able to access Gmail again after waiting 24 hours.|
|Sending a large number of undeliverable messages||If you send content to people you don’t know or to many people at the same time you will receive many messages that bounce back to your inbox. Same case if you send unsolicited promotional or commercial content. This should give you an alert about a stale database, and you will have to check again your contact list.||

|Using File-sharing / File storage software / Third party software||Be sure it doesn't automatically login to your account.|
|Leaving multiple sessions of Gmail open||If this happens, please log out all the instances and relog in Gmail / Google Sheets only once, and with a single Google account.||

|Browser-related issues||If you find your browser continually reloading while attempting to access your inbox, it's probably a browser issue, and it may be necessary to clear your browser's cache and cookies.|
What are the recommended solutions?
- Activate 2-step authentication on your account. This will avoid Google to think that the unusual activity (like the mail merge) has been done by someone not authorized to login to your account
- If you are a G Suite admin, you can unblock your account up to 5 times per year. Find more information: 'Restore a suspended Gmail account'
- If you have a Gmail account, you have to create another account.
