  • default number of recepients in Exchange 2003

    I am sure this is a dumb question, and for some odd reason I have been unable to find the answer out there.

    What is the default number of receipts (external domains) I can send an email to in Exchange 2003? I am running Windows 2003 SBS w/ SP2 and Exchange 2003 all on the same box.

    The default is 64000 recipients on the SMTP virtual server. Although if you are doing bulk emailing then you would be well advised to use something else.

      Thank you! Funny thing is a client asked me this, so I told him the answer (it was early AM and I didn't think to mention blacklisting), he turned around and tried to send out an email with 16,000 recipients. Now he is blacklisted haha!

        That would be a classic case of "just because you can, doesn't mean you should".
