Hi James,
nice software.

I’m just testing it before using it to invite visitors to my BNI group (Ferrers, Markyate) and have a couple of questions:

1) Is there a way that the email list can be edited before it is sent. In my test I noticed a few addresses to companies I wouldn’t want to invite.

2) All of the email addresses in my test have an outcome of ‘Mailbox unavailable. The server ….. is not authenticated’ Is this because, as a test, it was not sent?


Hi David,

You can either right click the line and add that domain to the blacklist, or you can add all the domains you wish to block to the blacklist manually. You might want to do this if you wish to avoid contacting existing or ex-members for example.

If you are getting an error message it would imply that your SMTP server settings are incorrect. Check the server address, port number, security setting, username, and password.

Best regards,
