2007 emails to groups

I have a few dynamic groups that actually show members so I know this grouping is working. When I send an email and select a group to send to act shows the group in the [to] field but nothing ever goes out not even one email. I can send and recieve emails but not group emails. My ISP is not limiting me, in fact the emails sent to the group are not showing up in the outbox at all. any help would be great, I'm about ready to go back to goldmine....Smiley Sad

Re: 2007 emails to groups

How many are in the Group?

Which email client are you using?

What step do you take?

Do you want to merge or have them all on the To; line?

 

The best way to do mass emails is to use either SwiftPage or MergeMaster!

Hi Mike Thanks for the reply:

 

The group has 900 people

I'm using the act email system

I create a new email no merge fields just text

I then select in the "to:" menu  "group"

I select the groupthe email then shows the group name in the to

 

I select send and absolutely nothing happens not even an email in the outbox.

 

I am not limited by my ISP because the emails never get created.

Re: 2007 emails to groups

You probably find a limit of 100-150 contacts in the field... this is certainly the limit in most Contact select fields

 

Even if it worked, if your ISP allowed it to go (I don't know any that would), most of the receiver ISPs and email clients would choke.

 

Try with a small group of 3-5 names and see if that works.

 

If doing that large a mass-email, you really need to use one of the solutions I linked above

I'll try that, I will also try using the merge feature, try to cut back on overloading the "to:" field.
