Tarpitting Email

If I remember rightly, it is possible to avoid triggering the tarpit if an email to multiple addresses is sent via a 'well-formed' mailing list. Does anyone happen to know if Entourage creates an allowable distribution list?

I think this may mean using the mailing list capabilities accessed via Email settings on the portal.

Thanks for the suggestion. The problem is, I need to send a one-off email to around 100 addresses, not currently in any address book. I usually use Mac's mail.app, but would have to enter each address separately in order to create a mailing list - with no guarantee that it wouldn't be tarpitted. PlusNets's mailing list options require one-by-one manual entry of addresses (rather than pasting 100 addresses into a list, for example).

Entourage allows the creation of a mailing list by pasting a load of addresses in a single action - but it looks like the result is being tarpitted by PlusNet.

Hi There

It does mean via the portal I am afraid as the way you are sending will be tarpitted.
