Mail merge trouble

Wow, this is a new one for me.


Okay, here is the crux of my problem.  I do a mail merge (ACT! 2008 and Outlook 2003).  All the Emails go out.  The result?  Not one bounce back, not one, and nobody on the receiving end gets an Email.  Anybody out there ever hear of this happening?  It is wild and I can't seem to point a finger at my ISP, MSFT or ACT!.  It is really, really vexing.  Any thoughts, ideas, comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

Re: Mail merge trouble

If they are in your sent items in Outlook then it may very well beyour ISP. In this part of the world I have heard that if you push more than a certain number of emails you may be regarded as a spammer and the ISP blocks the email. With the one I use it is any more than 18 emails so maybe you could sen 3, then 5, then 10 and see if these get through and then speak with your ISP
