E-mail Form - Maximum number of recipients? RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-1543783577 posted

    In a program i am working on, the current code will construct a semi-colon delimited string of e-mail addresses which are to be sent. Then an Outlook New Message window will open up with that string of recipients filling up the "To:" box. However, this errors out when the string is way too long (i.e. there are too many e-mail addresses). So my alternative is to use a form allowing the user to compose the message they want and then sending it via VB code (The current program uses window.location = "mailto: [addresses];subject=[subjectline]")

     My question is: Is there a maximum size or number of recipients that will botch my plans to use this web form as an alternative to sending an e-mail?

     Any ideas are greatly appreciated!

    I think the maximum number of receipients as for SMTP server settings is 100 by default. if you have larger number of receipients, you can create a loop over your users and send each 100 in a single email.
