    Hi

    I am currently using Windows Mail on Windows Vista and i am getting the below error message. I have tested the content of the e mail by sending it to myself and it works fine. The only difference is that i am trying to do a mail shot and i created 2 distribution list, the fist only has a couple of e mail addresses and was able to send to that fine, but the other DL has 6,000 contacts. I was able to create the DL without any warning over "too many contacts in distribution list". But i feel this is the only difference and must be the problem, but could be very wrong.


    An unknown error has occurred. Subject 'Get ready for theRugby 6 Nations with a selection of finest cheeses!', Account:'mail.thecheeseworks.co.uk', Server: 'smtp.gmail.com', Protocol: SMTP, Port:587, Secure(SSL): Yes, Error Number: 0x800CCC0B

    Please can someone help, we are a small business and it would be great if i could send a news letter to people that have ordered from me before. Any advice would be great.
    Thanks
    Steven

    thanks - will have to send out over 3 days...ahhh

    Is that Message or Recipients as its one message sent to 6000 in 12 different message 500 at a time. Or i will still be restricted by the messages per day cap of 2000?

    i think the best way would be to try and see - only issue is the first X will perhaps go before the limit is reached and so you may email someone multiple times and they wont like that - also chances are it will go into a spam filter anyway at recipitants end
