Can anyone tell me how I can determine what the maximum number of

recipients/email addresses I can enter in the bcc: field of an email in

Outlook 2003?

I think that number is generally limited by your ISP......

Asking a question?

Please tell us the version of the application you are asking about,

your OS, Service Pack level

and the FULL contents of any error message(s)

The total number of recipients per e-mail regardless of whether they are

specified in the To, Cc, or Bcc fields (which your mail server doesn't

care about because that is in the *data* of the message) is determined

by your e-mail provider. Ask them.

Your e-mail client compiles an aggregate list of recipients from the To,

Cc, and Bcc fields in its UI. From that list, it sends a separate

RCPT-TO command to the mail server. The mail server doesn't care what

are in the To, Cc, and Bcc fields inside the *data* of the message, only

what RCPT-TO commands it got to specify the recipients. Then the e-mail

client sends the DATA command to send your message (which includes the

To and Cc fields as *data*). For N recipients, and regardless of which

field used in the client's UI, there are N RCPT-TO commands sent to the

mail server followed by one DATA command. The mail server hasn't a clue

nor would it even care in which field (To, Cc, or Bcc) the recipient was

specified. That's part of the data of the message and is NOT used in

routing the e-mail.
