    Problems with sending bulk emails using Gmail

    I am chair of a small charitable organisation with about 350 members. For some years, I have used a gmail account set up for this organisation to send emails to all the members. This has worked without any difficulty - this is below the 500 recipients allowed by gmail. Today, however, all the emails were rejected - the only information was "message rejected". I have, however, been able to send the identical email to 50 people at a time without any problems. I wonder if anyone can tell me why this might be, and if there is anything I can do to stop it happening. Thanks

    500 per day total sent is a separate restriction (from 500 recipients on one message): Gmail Help: Limits for sending and getting mail https://support.google.com/mail/answer/22839

    I would be grateful if someone could advise me as to why I can no longer send an email to 350 recipients at once, but cans end the same email to the same number of people in batches of 50.

    I have been doing this successfully for several years but it failed yesterday.

    Thanks

    Could be that gmail has identified you as a spammer for some reason. Have you checked gmail support? You may need to contact them to resolve this.

    It allows me to send the email in batches of 50, but rejects exactly the same email when I try to send to 350 people, so I don't think it i seeing me as a spammer.
