I work from home for a professional organization with more than 200 members. I send email to the membership using Outlook 2007 SP3 which has no limit on the number of addresses for a distribution list.
It is my experience, however, that when sending mail to the distribution list I sometimes get a "Failed to Deliver" notice because there are "too many addressees". Does Verizon have a limit on the number of email addresses that can be on a distribution list?
Limitations on Sending E-mail
- You may send a single e-mail message to a maximum of 100 recipients in one mailing, not to exceed 500 recipients within a one hour period. All single e-mails sent to over 100 addressees will not be delivered. No notice will be given to you in this case.
- If you send e-mails to more than 500 recipients within a one hour period, your ability to send ANY e-mail messages is suspended for 24 hours. You will receive a Notice regarding this action.
Interesting. I never knew they restricted such. And I suspect other providers have similar rules. I wonder if this is related to the complaints that some people have saying they are not receiving mail from their Favorite organization that does group mailings. Especially if the sender is not being notified that they exceeded these limits.
