Office 365, Email, Exchange, Messages bounce back with Sender Denied or Access Denied

I sent an email to someone, but it bounced back to me with an error message stating that the sender is denied.

The bounce message may contain:
----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
<NetID@illinois.edu>
(reason: 554 5.1.0 Sender denied)
----- Transcript of session follows -----
... while talking to relay.mx.uillinois.edu.:
>>> DATA
<<< 554 5.1.0 Sender denied
554 5.0.0 Service unavailable

Or, the bounce message may contain:
550 5.7.1 Access denied

Resolution:

The recipient has placed the address of the sender on the Blocked Senders list in Exchange.  The recipient will need to remove the blocked address from their Blocked Senders list in order to allow messages to be delivered to their account.

To remove senders from the Blocked Senders list:
1.  Log into Exchange through the Outlook Web App: https://outlook.office365.com
2.  Click on the Gear icon which is located in the upper right corner
3.  Type Blocked Senders and Domains in the Search outlook settings field
4.  Click on Blocked Senders and Domains.
5.  Click on the Trash can icon to the far right of the Email address you wish to Allow to send to you again.
6.  Click on "Save" which is located at the top of the page.
