Your emails have not been sent out and you receive a bounce saying You have reached a limit for sending mail. This article explains what happened, and why.
Why have my emails not been sent out?
When you complete a mail merge, you might notice that some of your emails have not been sent out. Yet Another Mail Merge specifies it in your spreadsheet with the mention 'EMAIL_NOT_SENT' on the 'Merge status' column:
This happens because we failed to calculate properly your remaining quota. For some reasons, YAMM detected that you had fewer quota than it actually was.
To make sure that your recipients receive your email, you will need to resend it to these people. Check that you have enough quota within a 24 hours timeframe to avoid any blocked account (see section below), and also in your Gmail 'Sent' folder to make sure that you haven't already sent your emails to avoid sending duplicates.
Why do I get a message bounced due to sending limit?
If, at some point, you see the error message 'You have reached a limit for sending mail. Your message was not sent.' in Gmail directly, it means for some reason your account has a smaller quota than standard Gmail accounts.
Possible causes are:
- You sent a large number of undeliverable messages (messages that bounced back)
- You have linked a POP or IMAP client (e.g.: Microsoft Outlook or Apple Mail) with your Gmail account. You may only send a message to 100 people at a time
- You have a reply-to address from a different domain
- You are sending many emails with another tool
- You are leaving multiple instances of Gmail open
Therefore, you will have to check if one of the cases cited above apply to you, and fix this issue on your end.

Google blocked my account after receiving the bounces. What happened?
In an effort to fight spam, prevent abuse and unusual activity, Google will temporarily disable your account if you send messages to more than 500 recipients or if you send a large number of undeliverable messages.
To avoid this situation, please respect the general rules about emailing to avoid spam issues described in this following article: https://support.yet-another-mail-merge.com/hc/en-us/articles/212103069
