I live in a small senior community and  the Board of Directors is looking for a way to send email announcements of upcoming events to our 230 residents. Our provider is ATT- uverse (yahoo mail). Thus far I have tried Outlook, and Mail Chimp. All 3 have rejected the mail. Does anyone have a clue how I can do this.
Thank you very much.

I cannot be certain but I think the problem is that your ISP is seeing 230 addressees and is saying 'Whoa - Spam!'.


I presume you are trying to use some form of group mailing and have 230 addresses at the top of the e-mail. It might be worth contacting your ISP's service department to see if there is any way around this, or if they have an upper limit on the number of addressees allowed on an e-mail. If they do have an upper limit - say 50 - you may just have to set up five groups and send the e-mail out five times.

Yahoo Mail has recipient limits, but unhelpfully, it won't state what they are. However, if you do exceed the limit, they do notify you. In the case of ATT Uverse, which uses Yahoo Mail, there is a limit of no more than 100 recipients per email. One way around this may be to set up a Yahoo Group.
