Unhappy Help, problems for mailling lists

I wanted to make a link allowing all the members of the RMP to mail to the full team, a link with all the adresses together.

But there are about 37 members in the RMP, and when I try to put them all, theree is an error when clicking on the link : it tells I havent well installed outlook. I've tried all, and now I've seen it's when there are more than 19 members in the list that there are troubles.

It's not due to a bad adress in the list, I've tried many list possibilities.
Could you go there : http://firephoenix.free.fr/?goto=team.php3 ,and try the 2 mail links on the top ?
Does the left one work ?

Are there restrictions about the number of adressed, in outlook express ? HELP

Could you group the emails by jobs? That would keep the numbers down while still sending the same stuff out...

I'll do that for some jobs, but for newsletters and stuff that wont be OK....
This link is before all for me : it's a dynamic link, I wont have to change it when there si a new one, and furthermore, the group tool of Outlook Express doesnt work well, some members go out of it without reasons.

So does anyone manage to use the first link of that page ?

Starcraft ? I've played fully the game+add-on, and it's surely my best strategy game, even if I dont play in online, because I dont like this "rush" type of game, I prefer developping before attacking.

At the moment I play before all Unreal tournament online (the mutators scripts are fabulous !).

Well in fact I've never played Starcraft on battlenet servers, but the games I've made in lan tournaments showed me it was a rush style too often (2*6 zerglings in the face : no way to survive ) . And an other problem : if it's not a rush game, games can be quite long, and cause I until recently had a quite limited time and no adsl, I didnt want to have to quit in progress games.

So I prefer short games under unreal tournament : "face" map - lowgravity - instagib : 1300 kills total in 5 mn, after that you're happy for the rest of the day.

Ontopic post (I know I'm late): you can also have PHP send an email to all users, instead of using an email program. A simple example of a PHP mailer:

PHP Code:
<html>
<head><title>Mail form</title></form><?

// Define all names and email addresses here
$to = "wacko <bauk@gmx.net>" . " , ";
$to .= "SomeOne <some@one.net>" . " , ";
$to .= "BLAR <blar@blar.com>";

// Check if all fields have been filled in and send the mail if it's ok
if($subject&&$from&&$message) {
mail($to, $subject, $message, "From: $from");
echo("Your mail has been sent.<br>&nbsp;<br>");
}

?><form action="<? echo("$PHP_SELF");?>" method="post">
<b>Subject:</b> <input type="text" name="subject"><br>
<b>Your email address:</b> <input type="text" name="from"><br>
<b>Message:</b><br>
<textarea name="message"></textarea>
</form>

</html>
The email addresses list could also be automated, like fetched from a database.

Thanks, but anyway mail() is disabled on free.fr...and for coloured newsletter, it's not the best way I think...

----------

OK I've found : it's my win98 partition that must be formatted, causse my winXP manages to open this link without problems.
I had to go under XP one day or an other, anyway...
