This might be an easy one for you guru's but i cant find the setting.

How do i set within exchange so that users cannot send say more than 10 messages in one go.

Reason for this is that certain users are sending mailshots of  up to or more than 200 messages in one go which is causing performance issues and i want to stop this happening.

that is the global setting which would affect all the users in the Exchange ORG

as you had mentioned that there are only few users who are causing issues then the best would be to modify the properties only for them

to do this you need to open the properties of the user in active directory users and computers and then go into the "Exchange general tab". over there click on the "delivery options" and then modify the "recipient limits"

Say i set a limit then of 10 recipients. What would now happen if they tried to send an email to one with 11?

i think it would not go at all. and the user will get a message that there is a limit set and he/she needs to  reduce the number of recipients in the message.

in e2k/e2k3 the DL expantion is done by the categriozer. so i think the user will not be able to sent.

i have not tried limiting any user to send email to a particular number of users

to test this out you can create a test user and then check the settings on that user.
