Hello, I'm a python coder and I'm writing a mass mailing application using a gmail account. I wanted to know how many mail/minute can i send (500/24h is the official one, but I'm quite sure that if fractionated is more...).
I would also like to know when a mail is considered as spam by gmail, I mean missing headers, wrong mimetype and so on...
Thanks for help,

First, Gmail is probably not the platform to use if you have a large mailing list (try Google groups?)
Second, The limit is somewhere around 500 message/day
Third, Please don't take offense, but even if I knew the inner working to how Gmail filters spam, I'm not about to tell you in a public forum where every spammer can read the instructions.

You can be sure of one thing, Lukie boy. Your app pushes out the same content, or same length messages (and such with alike, not even equal, hashes) at regular intervals, you'll be detected in no time at all, and booted off no pardon-style. Read the Service Agreement, ain't no joke.
