My boss informed me he was unable to send emails.
Since I wasn't at work, I checked with our provider who told me that the service needed to be updated through WordPress.
I did the needed updates, but the error persisted.
Checking the work accounts, all emails bounce back with this error message:

This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

While this email was to a google address this happens regardless of the recipient.
