Help! Google Cut off my ability to send out email via gmail!

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

In the meantime, I have written on a blackboard 100 times: I will not spam for good. One of things I did as a last ditch strategy was to email out a group message to various contacts and it seemed to have brought in some last minute contributions. I did the bcc of group emails.

I need to figure out a way answer email.

Michael Stein's Non-profit Technology Blog

Bricklin has spoken of watching his university professor create a table of calculation results on a blackboard.
