We all get emails from people where 30 other people were also copied.
Why Can’t I Send Mass Emails to Friends, Clients and Family?
- Sending to more than 20 people at a time can trigger the recipient’s email system that it is spam and your email address can be blocked.
- Even if you “blind carbon copy” (BCC), the receiving server can still see that you have sent to a large number and thinks you are sending spam.
- Sending to a large number of people will increase the spam for your friends, clients and family. Someone in that list, no matter how you trust them, will sell those addresses…easy money and you helped.
- If that email went to 50 people, you have now shared everyone’s private email with total strangers.

Companies like Constant Contact and MailChimp have set it up so that you can do this and avoid all the headaches listed above.
