Hi Thanks for that. Is there any way to see this limit using phpinfo() or any other way. I have asked the server host, but they have not offered any possible explanation. I probably sent about 20 emails over a half hour period before it stopped working. Hardly what I would call excessive, but maybe there is some limitation if the emails are coming from a script. It has been about 4 hours and I am still not able to send emails from the script. Thanks again.

It's certainly possible for servers to limit outgoing messages in a given time period, either by number of recipients or number of messages, or a combination of the two. -- Paul Waring http://www.pwaring.com -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
