The other day I imported the vCards from the address book on my iMac to the one on my MacBook Pro. Then I recreated the group I always used on the iMac to send pictures of my kids. There are 114 contacts in that group.

Now, when I try to send email to that group from the MacBook, I get the following error:

The server "smtp.mac.com" did not recognize the following recipients:

And then it lists a bunch of the addresses.

But when I try to send an email to those recipients individually it works fine. Only when I attempt to send mail to a big group does it give me this error. I never had this problem on the iMac.

Any suggestions?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.2)

    I'm having this exact same problem. I can't seem to find any answer as to why it is doing this.

    Same problem here. What gives? Is there a limit to how many people you can send an e-mail?

    Not in mail - possibly your ISP has such a limit

    I've not had this problem recently - and I never use .mac for large distribution lists - but in the past when I did it always turned out to be user error - I had a leading space or some other address formation error on my part as I made the mail list - in some cases it was very subtle and it took a while to see what I had done -- look very closely at the ones that do not work (I assume that some are working and some are not) - you probably will find the problem

    Good Luck

    Thank you for your prompt response. There must be a limit on my webhost or isp because breaking the list down to fewer than 50 worked fine. Thanks again!
