Mail delivery Failure...??

What would cause this?
It only happens when I sent our group the weekly results, but if I copy and paste it in the Bcc (with the group) they get the email.
Its very strange because two weeks ago this was not a problem.
I'm thinking its in the/their settings?

Thanks in advance, Bill

Re: Mail delivery Failure...??

Most likely, this is GMail being s****y about protecting their users from "spam" by blocking mail sent to many users.

They tend to block stuff without telling the recipient, unfortunately. Usually you get some long text below that, which would tell you whether it's blocked, or just unreachable for some reason. (There are stories online about Google blocking financial e-mails, such as booking confirmation requests, invoices, etc, that are perfectly valid, even when users have selected not to block stuff.)

I'd say either A) you're on Google's list as being a spammer because of the multi-recipient thing, or B) the recipient's on the list as being a target for spam and therefore "worthy" of their "extra protection".
