Email with PDF attachment is being reported as SPAM


Well-Known Member
Would like to know what is happening here.

Last night, an email was sent out to a group of about 70; it had an 8-page PDF attached.
It was sent from my iCloud address.
One chap asked me to re-send using my Shaw email address and I have done so.
So far, no response has been received.

One responder included this notice --

I don’t know whose provider the sender had, but most email services no longer allow mass emails of anywhere near that number.

Anybody needing to send email out to that many people should be using a service such as MailChimp.
