As it has been said in that link that you have more contacts in your DL if you have less information in the contact list.
I know there was one question here in outlook TA few months back when someone has around 553 in his distribution list..

I donot think that case was solved but he might have reached the limit..

have you tried having just contact's name and email address and tested how many would fit in a DL ?

Great suggestion from Sunray. Another way around the large dist list is to sort your contacts and assign them a category (ie project a). Then you can email to everyone in the category like this:

View the contacts by category, click on the category name  and select "actions", new message to contact.

Also, sounds like a listserv function to me. If necessary, why not investigate other free programs for that, such as topica
