    Limited Email?

    While using Outlook 2007 as my email client, I would on occasion send out an email or two to my graduating class. That would be one email to about 150 or so people. I am now using WLM as my desktop client and when I tried to send that many emails I got the message you see attached. Yes, I went and verified my account and all of that. Do I need to reinstall Outlook? I haven't tried it yet with Outlook RT.

    Were you using a different email provider then as opposed to now? As you probably know, this is a automated spam prevention "feature," and similar measures are in place for all the major web-mail providers. I don't know what the limit is but even with a verified account there is still a limit depending on some factors like compliance with MS code of conduct, age of the account, frequency of sign in, free or paid account, etc.

    Since verification have you tried sending two or three emails with 75 or 50 addressees per?

    By breaking it up I was able to send to about 2/3 of the recipients, until that damned message showed up again. I verified the account for the third time. I will wait until this evening and then try again I have sent a note to MS support too to see what we can do.
    Thanks John

    Regular accounts aren't really suited to "mass emailing", due to spam protection. If you need to email a lot of people regularly, it's best to get an account just for this purpose.
