    Hi,

    this is very practical question, so I dont what to know what MS manuals says about it - i want to know what PEOPLE, USERS knows on it. So - i am sending work offers to different people. And I am prefering distribution lists with their names (on BCC). So i would like to ask you how many addresse can i add to one e-mail not causing Outlook or serwers to work slowly or cause any other problem. My initial letter is text only, no attachments, nothing. Plain text. So i am asking anybody with good experience on that filed: how many names I can add with no problem...

    I would be very grateful for your quick response :)

    Yours

    Jazzek

    A lot depends on your ISP

    some class more than 4 or 5 as possible spam and block you sending

    others allow 10 or so.

    I would try at 10 & see if it sends and if it doesn't then cut down the numbers of bcc

    Hi: I have hotmail and it allows me to send 50 at one time....how do I know that? Because it pops up a message if I try to send more than 50 saying 50 is the limit! :) Take care. angel :)

    The messages sent to you are different than the ones you would send out. Some ISPs don't monitor how many people are getting a message you send. Others as noted before will flag it as possible massmailing.

    Thanks all of you for your posts! :)

    OK, i will contact my ISP and ask frankly to how many people i can send one letter. You see, I am not a spamer, just want to inform some 120-200 people from press about my new homepage with my articles - you know, i fight for living which in my case=writing as freelancer :)

    Thanks for your letters and I wish all of you a good and happy weeek :)

    Sincerely yours

    Jazzek

    My ISP allows 100, so, yes. You'll have to ask your ISP or try to send and see if it goes out.

    Thanks Del,

    no, i will ask - i like clear situations, i not commiting any "cybercrimes" :) so i have no problem with askings first. If my ISP agree on +/- 100 - that would be great :)

    Take care

    Wouldn't be a cybercrime, they probable have a limit and if it goes out, you're under the limit.
    Have a great day.

    If you find your ISP's limit is too low then use

    http://www.postcastserver.com/

    it helps you to run your own smtp server on your computer and eliminates the limit problems

    Hi,

    problem is solved. Just called my ISP who told me the only limit is number of people... reporting my e-mail as a spam to my ISP :)) As far as I chose only TRUE FRIENDS on my distribution list I can go as far as 10,000 guys...

    Derek, hegdehogs rules! :)

    Take care and best wishes from snowy Poland!

    Sincerely yours

    Jazzek

    Might I add that if you plan to do this regularly, I would recommend you getting another email client. There are other clients out there that allow you to do a lot more advanced stuff when it comes to mass-mailing.

    Hi corrosive :)

    Thanks for your advice. The problem is that i dont know yet if i will need more "mass-mailing" anymore... But, in any case, can you tell me which client is better for mass-mailing than Outlook 2K? Maybe i will try to check it anyhow :)

    Greeting from Poland to Scotland!

    Yours
