Q: Are there any limits to the number of messages I can send?

A: Since Hosted Exchange is a multi-tenant environment, meaning it's shared by thousands of users and organizations, we do impose some reasonable restrictions to ensure a high quality of service for everyone. Users can send messages to 10,000 distinct recipients each day. Each message can be sent to up to 500 recipients at a time. The speed at which these messages are sent is restricted to 15 messages per minute. Some limits, such as incoming and outgoing message sizes, can be configured by your organization's administrator. To view your limits, please log in to the control panel and consult the Limits screen for your mailbox.
