Dave, thanks

I forgot to mention, about 4 of the ones I sent were rejected because of bad email (I got that long winded message about that in my inbox).

I had about 100 (not sure the exact #).

But doesn't that reject (bounce) of the few indicate it was sent?

Since many things can happen, the only sure sign that the emails were sent would be a reply from someone you sent it to.

OK, sure.

But I sat here & pasted in chunks of email into my normal gmail & sent them.

One person says he didn't get it, but he's kind of flaky.

I trying to check with others now.

While most of the time email 'works', the people receiving it do not have to accept it.  Or they may filter it to the trash.  It is not all your choice and never will be.

I understand those things.

The list we have (about 103 people) is in a database of a homeowners Assn. Most have been successfully emailed in the past.

The automated system failed (a separate problem), so we decided to "manually" send these out instead because of time considerations.
