503 Error When Logging Into NNTP Server

Why am I receiving a "503 error: 61169FY" or "503 too many login attempts" error when logging into the NNTP server?
This error occurs when there are several failed login attempts with an incorrect username and password combination via the NNTP server by your newsreader or NZB client. If your newsreader or NZB client attempts to connect with the wrong username and password too many times, your account and IP address will be blocked for an hour or more. Please do not try to access your account during this lockout period or more time will be added to the lockout. During this time you will still have access to our Easynews (web) server.

If you would like to have the lockout cleared right away, you can contact support to double check your login information and have this lockout removed.
