Up until about a week ago, I was able to send a group message with around 100 recipients.  Now, I get this error code:

Subject 'Meeting'
Server Error: 452
Server Response: 452 4.1.1 Maximum number of recipients reached
Server: 'smtp.windstream.net'
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC79
Protocol: SMTP
Port: 25
Secure(SSL): No

What is the issue?  I have contacted my email provider and they said it was a Windows Live Mail issue.  Please help.

Original title: Message from "*** Email address is removed for privacy ***" delivery failed


When sending message to a relation in Australia, I receive message "This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.
 Delivery to the following recipients failed."

 This has been happening for a few months now, also cannot receive E-mails from same person.

I cannot send emails from my outlook.com. I appear to be receiving mails ok.  Mails are showing in my sent box as if they have been sent but recipients are not receiving them. I have set Gmail to forward emails to outlook.com. This was working fine till about 5-days ago.

I can send from Gmail ok and they appear in my outlook.com inbox, I just can't send or reply from outlook.com although they are in the sent box?

I have a group set up in my contacts which contains 29 people;  When I try to send to this group, I immediately receive a response from *** Email address is removed for privacy *** which simply says:


This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.

Delivery to the following recipients failed


and then lists ALL of the recipients.


It gives no further explanation.  I can send individual emails.


Any suggestions?


I created 3 emails on Outlook 2013 and sent them to 3 different recipients using my Outlook.com account.  They emails arrived at the intended recipients inbox.  I can also see the emails in the sent items folder in the Outlook.com webmail interface.  The sent emails are not in the Outlook 2013 sent items folder.  Why are these emails showing up in my Outlook 2013 sent items folder?

Also, when I created they emails, I inserted screen shots of a webpage into the text of the email.  The recipient said the screenshot had been converted to unviewable .dat files.  When I send an email without any screen shots, I can see the email in the Outlook 2013 sent items folder.

I would greatly appreciate any assistance you can provide.
Hi there,

I send out weekly mass emails for my job at a university to about 900-1000 students, faculty and staff (bcc'ed) through Outlook for Mac 2011 on an exchange server. Some of the recipients are on the same exchange server that I am on and I know they receive my messages, but I want to ensure that other recipients (who might use gmail or hotmail, etc.) are receiving my messages and that they aren't going to their junk mail folders. Some people have suggested that I send my emails out in batches of 100 at a time, to ensure they aren't triggering spam filters.

Is this necessary, or does the amount of recipients not matter for triggering spam filters (but rather that it's the content that is most important for avoiding people's junk mail folders)? And, if I should be sending my emails out in batches, how many recipients should I send to at a time?

I can't seem to find a definitive answer anywhere, so input from a Microsoft engineer would be great.



My Windows Live Mail has recently began not sending e-mails stating I have too many recipients. Up until now I have been able to e-mail about 99 recipients at anyone time but now it appears to be limited to about 50. Any suggestions?


Original title: Windows Live Mail                   

We made the mistake to try to send an email to a large number of recipients via our business email address and now our email address is considered as spam by all hotmail recipients. Is there a way to re-approve our email address as valid and not spam? This is important to us as many people in our list od recipients are aged and do not take the time to look into spam folder of their hotmail accounts.
Thank you

I found the need to have a generic email account automatically forward emails to multiple recipients within our custom domain in outlook.com for notifications.  I have noticed that outlook.com offering the built-in email forwarding feature to a single email address under more setting.  However, I cannot find a way to forward to muliple email address.


Could anyone please give me a hand on this matter?


Thank you in advance,
