Don't use Yahoo as your email. What's happening that the church is sending the emails but spoofing your email address as the sender. Yahoo doesn't allow that. So anyone who has a Yahoo email tied with their account and tries to send via the church systems will encounter that.

Ok, Here is the big question.
IS THERE A GOOD WAY TO SEND MASS TEXT TO THE ENTIRE WARD FOR FREE?
Without having to make subgroups and do copying and pasting.
One message, one click and boom, out to the ward.
There are many services out there that will do it for a fee. We don't want a fee. Our tithing is the fee.
Thanks

Non-sequitur. The church does not sponsor any such mass texting. So, your tithing does not pay for texts.

Texting is not free. Even if you do find someone that doesn't charge, chances are it means giving up member's privacy.
