I have a domain name & email account with, when I try and send a invitation/newsletter to all the contacts in Outlook 2007 I receive a email from System Administrator saying: error 452 Too many recipients & listing all the email addresses that failed to receive the email. I contacted support and they advised me to send 30 or 50 e-mail’s at a time.
Is this a case of you get what you pay for?
If I changed my domain name & email to another company (e.g. XTRA) would the same thing happen?
Has anyone else had a similar experience?
I want to send invitations/newsletters to 300+ contacts as I expect my address book to grow.

Sorry if I posted this in the wrong place, wasn't sure what forum was best for this type of topic.

Most providers limit the number of recipients to prevent spam. You can either send multiple emails to small sets of recipients or use a third party program to send individual emails.

I second what Mauricio says.  Also - take note that some cases if you are sending a lot of emails one after the other some email servers will actually cause you to have to wait before sending more emails.

I remember sending emails to 200+ contacts in Office 2003 when I worked for another company in 2006 with a different domain and web hosting services and not having any problems.

Has this come about because of new Spam regulations/laws in New Zealand?
Can anymore recommend a domain and web hosting service that will allow me to send multiple emails?
What is that third-party program you are talking about Freitasm?

Thanks for your time & advice.

It's not a new thing - the ability to limit the number of emails in a single session has been an option in email servers for quite a while.

All email servers will let you send multiple emails - it's just whether you can send a bulk run in one session (or one email in outlook).

Site studio is one piece of software that I know some people use (it's web based, so you need a web server and email server setup) - there are also hosted services to do a similar thing.

The easiest way (that won't cost you $, but will cost you time) is to break the list up into a max of 30 - 50 email addresses into a mailing list, and then just re-send the same email to each list.

There are other solutions (mailman is the one I'm thinking of) that will intelligently manage your mailing lists and forward each email as an individual email out to each person.  Of course - this course will require setting everything up and ensuring that everything works OK.

It took me a while to set up, but if you have access to your domain's zone file/you can get your mx and cname records updated you can host your mail with google, so the mail is coming from but all the service is hosted by google. I'm not sure what restrictions they have in place but I have used it to send over 100 emails in one day to a message list and it was fine. It may not be what you are looking for but it was worth a shot :)
