I have created a contact list in outlook and added 50 persons to it from my adressbook.  All mail adresses in my adr book are operational, and I can send mail to addresses when i pick addresses directly from the addressbook
When sending to contact list, none of the receipient get the msg.  In outlook the msg is marked as sent.  I checked with smtp server and there is no mail coming from sender, so the problem seem to bee within outlook.  I have tried to expand the list so that all the mail addresses in my list is shown in To: field  The mail will still not "leave" the computer
I get no errors, the messages is marked as sent, but none of the receipients get the mail..
Any suggestions ?

Comment :  Started to remove adresses from the contact list, and found that when the number of receipient came under 49 the message was sent.  There must be a workaround here ?  
Client is running pop3 ( no exchange server), and restrictions on ISP SMTP serv numbers of receipients are set to 500,  therefore the problem must be within outlook

This is a known issue in Outlook, but if the messages showed as "Sent" , they may have been delivered to recipients' junk mail folder.
The work around is to NEST your contact groups. Create groups of 50 or fewer contacts and then create a group to hold the subgroups of contact groups. Does that make sense?
