Can a DL List be broken down and sent one address per message?

I currently have an exchange 2003 box in a Server 2003 domain.  I have
150 odd workers in the field who carry cell phones.  I created a
Distribution List in a public folder, and used the [add new...] button
to place each cell users "text message" address in the list.
(5551231234@vtext.com is the format).  I did not create contacts or
domain/email accounts for these users.  They exist no where except for
in this DL.

Yesterday, I sent an email to supervisors@mydomain.com (supervisors is
the list name) from my local exchange account using outlook and all
worked fine.  It showed up as a text message on all the phones.

This morning, I was tasked with sending a reminder follow up message.
This time, I received the relay confirmation from my exchange box, but
the messages were never received by the phones.  I made multiple
attempts, all with the same results.  

It looks to me like the issue in with Verizon, and after speaking with
the data specialist there, they indicated that you cannot send a
message to more than 10 cells at a time.  They have no explanations
for why it worked yesterday.

My question, finally, is it possible to have exchange send each
message individually, as opposed to having them all in the to, or the
cc, or the bcc?  I realize this would equal a large increase in
traffic, but this list won't see a lot of activity, (1 or 2 a month)
so I'm fine with that.

I appreciate any and all help.

The message sent today had "- 2nd Notice" appended to it.  I took that
out and it worked.  I'm assuming it was the hyphen.

exporting category list
How do you export the category list in Money 2004? Thanks. Glenn IF you want to get categories that have been used in transactions, probably the best way is to use MoneyLink to pull all transactions for all dates for all accounts into Excel. From there, simple spreadsheet manipulation can get you there along these lines: 1) Copy the category/subcategory columns to a new sheet. 2) Sort the entries on Category and Subcategory. 3) Create a formula to only show the Category/Subcategory if it's not what's in the next row. 4) Copy the unique resultant column(s). 5) Paste Special|Values ...

I track 4 of the steps by counting the number of times a value appears in a date field for that step. The count is then displayed and used in a calculation. The 5th step is more complicated.
