It could be because the mail body is not formatted properly.. try to format as HTML..also check if the mail body itab and variables are cleared after each send

Hopefully the below URL will be helpful

Hi Vincent,

remove all global variables of your program, use FORMs/METHODs/FUNCTIONs with defined interfaces.

Use CL_BCS for everything involved with mail sending.

You will avoid missing buffer clears and soo may other troubles.
