Can no longer paste multiple e-mail addresses!!!

Can no longer paste multiple e-mail addresses!!!

I have been sending a weekly newsletter e-mail to a large group of recipients, for several years now.  I have been doing this by maintaining the e-mail list in a MS Word document, and I just copy & paste into the bcc: section.

 

SUDDENLY that no longer works.  The paste treats the e-mails as one long address, and of course if fails.  WHAT CHANGED that made this stop working.  I have tried it with three different browsers ..... I have tried it with the e-mails in the Word Document seperated by a semi-colon followed by a blank space, and with only a blank space.  I've tried copying the e-mails from an application other than MS Word, like Notepad, etc.  Nothing works .....  the last two newsletters I sent forced me to copy and paste each e-mail address, one at a time. I have over 60 addressees .....

 

PLEASE ..... why does this not work anymore (what changed at Comcast), and how can I get around it?

 

Thanks

I'm in the new format, and I just tried it using a comma and no space between addresses.  Worked just fine.  I'm on a Mac using Pages, but I would think it would work from Word too.

 

ETA:  OK I just tried in the old format, and it works there too.

Re: Can no longer paste multiple e-mail addresses!!!

Perfect!!  Thank you.  The comma works as a delimiter .... it was always a semi-colon, so i don't know what changed.  I modified my e-mail list to end each address with a comma and a space, and the paste works again as it has for years.

 

Thank You so much!
