How to resolve the problem of limits for sending and receiving mail
To help prevent spam and keep Gmail accounts safe and secure, Google email limits the number of emails you can send or receive per day, and the number of user you can add as email recipients.
Fixing the problem
Identify the reasons below to learn how to resolve seeing these emails in the future.
Note: If you use your Google email account through your work, collage, or other institution, learn about Gmail sending limits through work or collage.
“You have reached a limit for sending email”
You may see this email if you send an email to more than 500 users in a single email, or send more than 500 mails in a day.
When you get this error massage, you should be able to send emails again within 1 to 24 hours.
To stop this from happening in the future, try creating a Google Group of all your email recipients and sending the email to that group’s email address.
“Email you sent couldn’t be delivered”
You might see such kind of error if a large number of mails you send:
- Can’t be delivered because the recipient’s email address is not valid
- Bounce from the recipient’s mail server
You can send emails again after 24 hours.
To stop this from happening in the future, check your recipient’s’ mail addresses before sending to make sure they’re updated.
A contact is getting too much email
If someone you’re sending email to is getting too many massages too fast, you might see this error message:
“The Gmail user you are trying to contact is receiving email at a rate that prevents additional emails from being delivered.”
You’ll need to contact that person in a different way.
