    Contact Not Found

    I'm trying to send out an obituary email to about 100 people or so, 90% or so of which are not in my address book. I keep getting the pop up trying to find a name, and I can't seem to turn that off so I can send out the email. This is occurring in Outlook, as well as WLM. How can I stop that. I have a known address in the To area on both and the rest of the names are in the Cc.

    Thanks

    I would think that you have a malformed email address if Outlook is trying to resolve a name.

    Have you disabled Outlook's automatic name checking?

    Many ISPs have placed restrictions on how many recipients can be specified for an individual message; part of their efforts to combat spam.

    Try sending your message to 1+8 or fewer recipients at a time.

    Yea that was the first thing I looked into Joe. I'm thinking along your line of having a badly formatted email address. I've used this list before, but that doesn't guarantee that something along the way got messed up.

    Also, consider using a blind CC when mass mailing to protect the individual email addresses from being seen by the recipients.
