I'm studying in the Russian non-technical University now, but we don't have normal e-mail list to get e-mails from teachers and from each other.

I've created an account on Gmail and send that address to all our teachers. Then I've created 20 filters to forward any incoming e-mail to 20 classmates (gmail limit). And I've created a rule to resend e-mail to other Gmail address. This address has similar filters to other classmates accounts. So, all 35 students can receive teacher's e-mails.

Everything was ok till this september.

During the vacations this scheme stopped working: filters does not run. Filters are very simple (if * forward to name@qwe.ru). Only direct forwarding to one address works. Looks like Gmail blocked this option for my "mail-list".

So, the question is: how can I fix forwarding by the filter?

As an option: is there any way do solve my problem (have one e-mail address for my group) using any free web-service? I know that I can create my own e-mail server, but it's too difficult for me to manage it.

Questions about web services are off topic on superuser, maybe have this question migrated to webapps.SE. An alternative would be to look at mailing lists and how they work. –  Baarn Sep 8 '12 at 21:56
Well if it is an off topic, there is no problem to relocate the question. Can I do it myself? –  Valery Sep 8 '12 at 21:57
Flag it (below the question) as off topic and choose webapps. I am not 100% sure if it is on topic there, but I bet it would be. Please wait and do not cross post. Welcome to the StackExchange Sites, anyway. Its a bit confusing to get used to the somewhat strict rules, but nice afterwards :) –  Baarn Sep 8 '12 at 22:00
I still think that your approach is a bit too complicated (even if it works), but I have no idea how mailing lists work when you administer them, I know that they exists and only receive mails from them. –  Baarn Sep 8 '12 at 22:01
Ok, I've flagged the question. Let's see the result. –  Valery Sep 8 '12 at 22:03
