I successfully sent an email to a single recipient.  When I tried to send an email to my distribution list, I got an error message that "An Error Occurred!  Failed to send message."  There is no indication of what caused that error.  This is the first time I have tried to use my distribution list since the email software change.  Help!  My site is wixomlakeassociation.org, the email address if info@wixomlakeassociation.org.

Are there more than 25 addresses on the list? If so you may have to break it into 2 or more lists.

Yes, there are more than 25 addresses.  I wasn't aware of that limitation.  Do I need to limit the number of recipients to 25 for each message?

HI Drothman, IF you have been on the web for any length of time you will know that "spam" unsolicited mail, is up there with the most annoying elements of being on the web. Apart from the annoyance factor, large volumes of emails can drag the speed of the web down including, at the extreme end, denial of service attacks. Web email servers look at multiple address emails as potential spam and try to deal with them accordingly. Identifying the sender and "blacklisting them" . A limit of 25 emails at a time may be an irritant for legit Companies but, at the end of the day, it benefits us all.

Please provide a link to information that describes this and other revised "features" of the new email software compared to the one we had previously.
