    Can't Send Email to over 5 recipients (2000/SR-1)

    I have a frustrating problem. I can't sende-mail to over 5 recipients at at time. I can receive and send to individual e-mail addresses just fine, but if I try to send a message (with or without an attachment), I receive the message from the System Administrator:

    Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

    Subject:
    Sent: 10/11/2004 10:22 PM

    The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

    Anne Birch (E-mail) on 10/11/2004 10:22 PM
    No transport provider was available for delivery to this recipient.

    I can send e-mail to over 5 people at a time via web mail for my service provider, but not through Outlook 2000.

    Any ideas?

    The mail protocol over which you would use webmail is different from that which you would use for Outlook. To me, it sounds like your Service Provider has gone a little bit "over the top" in attempting to restrict bulk mail. Have you tried looking at the FAQ/Help on their home page for customers?

    Thanks very much! I was overlooking the obvious -"username@serivce provider.net" was set as my e-mail user name instead of just the user name alone - this was causing the bounce. Don't know how this setting change happened. After a call to tech support , just as you guessed, my service provider recently put a 50 address cap on DSL accounts. Apparently, if I pay more for a business account, I can send to over 50 recipients at a time.

    Is there some stable software available that will allow me to send emails to 150-200 people at a time through my e-mail address?

    Thanks again!

    Outlook does as well as many others, but you ISP will still have the final say, 50 at a time or pay more????
