it seems the mentioned error was initiated because of the below WHM settings in WHM > Exim Configuration Manager

Ratelimit incoming connnections with only failed recipients [?]
Ratelimit incoming SMTP connections that have only sent to failed recipients five seperate connnection times in the last hour.

What I suggest is look for any file named /var/cpanel/email_send_limits/max_deferfail_xxxxx.co.uk and if found remove that file from the server after take a backup.
