I use Windows 7 and gmail.  I have created several distribution lists with 154 recipients on one and 38 recipients on another.  From time to time, the emails are all bounced back.  I do not think I have exceeded the limit nor do I know if someone reported me as spam.  Following is the error message I received, I have clicked on suggested links and include those messages.

I think both the cause and the solution are included in the above messages -


You added a large group of recipients to "Cc" or "Bcc"  -  The cause


If you're emailing a large group, create a Google Group, then email that group  -  The cure


Report the problem   -  If 'The cure' doesn't work

I believe I created groups.  I have 14 of them.  I wonder why the shole group came back.  This was less than the 5000 emails or recipients listed as the limits.
