I keep getting the message that the addresses are bad (they aren't, have gone through each one). I divided the group in 2 with 98 in each...

 

Thank you

    There is no limit on the number in a group. Some ISPs limit the number of recipients for a single email. If you are getting messages about bad addresses, there is a liklihood that there is/are bad ones - sometimes it is something the visual inspection might not catch. Does the error message not say which addresses cause the problems? Is it an error message from the Mail application, or an email message from the ISP?

    Thank you Austin for the quick reply! It shows *every* address as the problem. I went back and checked them all and there are no spaces or misplaced characters. The error is from the mail application not the ISP.

     

    Thank you for your help on this... it is a strange one!

    Can you post a screenshot of the error message?

    Austin, here are the details: she has mail version 3.6. OSX 10.5.8. Here is a screenshot:

    Austin, I figured it out! Thank you for your help.

     

    It was a combination of 3 things:

    *bad email addresses (but not all of them)

    *too many being sent at once, once I divided the list into segments under 50, it sent.

    *a finicky smtp setup.

     

    Thank you so much for your help...
