    Hi,

    I have a problem with the sending an email to large bcc list (about 30 emails in the list) from outlook :-

    The email :-

    to : one recipient
    from : an email account on the same server
    cc : none
    bcc : a list about 30 emails created in outlook on a standalone WinXP with a DSL line (qwest)
    incoming/outgoing mail server : mail.userdomain.com

    exim returns with error :-

    550 relaying to &some@email& prohibited by administrator


    sometimes it did got through without problem.

    Any idea ?

    This is old, but I would like to bump it anyway as I have a client having the exact same problem.

    Anyone want to tackle this one?

    Go on, have a guess
    Well, email header fields have a maximum size and if that is exceeded you'll get an error. The best you can do is to advise clients to use a mailing list application instead - that's what they're for.
