BCC field

I have looked in the knowledge base and cannot find an answer to this one.

In sending to a large group in the BCC field, if one of the recipients email addresses cannot be found, does this mean that none of the other recipients will receive it (the whole email not sent)?

I say this because this looks as though this has just happened to me. Immediately I hit the send button an error message came up saying that it could not be sent because one particular address could not be found. There was nothing in my sent box to say that anything had been sent. I hit the send button again but exactly the same message came up (same rejected address).

I am asking this because the group is made up of many people I have contacted over the past years - some of whom may probably now have new addresses. I was hoping that only the now non-existent email addresses would not be delivered (bounce back) but the other ones would be delivered.

It looks as though I may have to send to each separately. Any help appreciated.

"In sending to a large group in the BCC field, if one of the recipients email addresses cannot be found, does this mean that none of the other recipients will receive it (the whole email not sent)?" No. The message would have to be sent in order to be rejected from the recipient's mail server.

What email client are you using? Have you looked at the list to make sure the email addresses are all entered in the proper format? What is the exact error message you're getting?

My apologies - I meant to say - I am using Outlook Express 6.


I cannot simulate the message because to stop OE trying to send it every few minutes I deleted it from the Outbox. Now it will not allow me to put it back in. It did say though that one of the email addresses was rejected by the server.

I compiled the group by using the 'internal new group maker' in OE address book. I did not type in the addresses manually. They are all correctly listed separated by a semi-colon.

If there is a wrong email address in the list, the mail will not be sent.
You have to correct or delete the wrong e-mail address from the BCC list and sent the mail.
