Issuing emails by mail merge

I'm using MS Word to create emails by mail merge. I'm sending to 250 addresses.

Many emails are failing with an error message:

Server error: '453 4.1.1 Too many messages (VM601)'

Any ideas what problem could be?

Re: Issuing emails by mail merge

Virgin Media has limits set for how many messages can be sent.  They have limits for things like in total and per hour and per day, I believe.  They don't publish the limits, but they are lower for when you are away from home and even lower when abroad.  It is a residential service so limits keep things running smoother for all users and it helps control spam, probably.

Ah! That figures. Many thanks. At least I know what's wrong now. Need to find another solution for my charity.
