Not receiving emails, please don't offer obvious fixes

Multiple senders have let me know that their emails are being returned with the message "the recipient's email system refused to accept a connection from your email system".  I have checked filters, firewalls, mail settings, internet connectivity, all the obvious fixes.  Some emails are coming through days later, most are not coming through at all.

This MUST be an AT&T server problem.  Please advise.

There are no "obvious fixes".Google, ATT and Microsoft are all involved. I have not seen a full explanation but one comment was that some Google servers are sending multiple messages that ATT sees as spam and so  are blocking the server.

Same thing happens to me with my work account. Every time I send an email to my home email it says that the email server has rejected the message for some reason. I checked in filters and my email isn't blocked. It must be a system-wide issue with AT&T mail
