Limit Sending Messages with Email Client

Limit Sending Messages with Email Client

Footprints Public Solution # 71557 Updated March 2016

Webmail powered by Google has a limit of 99 sent messages during one transmission from email clients, such as Outlook and a total daily sending limit of 2,000 messages per account in an effort to fight spam and prevent abuse.

If you must exceed the 99 recipients limit per message, you have two options:

  • Obtain an Oakland University mailing list. Complete the Mailing List Account Request Form
  • Re-send the message to the additional recipients, not to exceed the Gmail daily sending limit of 2,000 per day.

After reaching one of these limits, the account cannot send new messages but can still access the account and receive incoming email messages.
