limit the number of receipients...

We have a few users that need to send an email to about 1400 people, and they just paste the 1400 emailadresses into the "To" field.
Can we get our Exchange server (2003) to automatically send 14 email with only 100 receipients in each email instead ?
If yes, how is it done ?

Thanks guys.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Open up the 14 user account(s) (1 at a time) in Active Directory User and Computers (ADUC).   Select properties and then the "Exchange General" tab.  Select the "Delivery Options" button and change the "Recipient Limit" from "USE DEFAULT" to "Maximum Recipients."  Select the desired value, "100" in your example.    

Or set this as a glogal default in the Exchange System Manager if you want to apply this restriction to everyone.
