Dunno how mathematics works in your universe, but 4 * 150 != 350 in the one in 
which I live :)

Don: Options...

* Switch to a dedicated server, or a VPS host that doesn't have that limit.

* Use Gmail or another hosted email provider (may have a similar limit but I've 
never run into it with Gmail).

* Use a service like http://sendgrid.com/.
