Single user with multiple connections to Exchange server

The accounting department at company I work for uses MS Excel to run most of the department functions. They have 25 PCs the they logon to at night to run their "processes" in Excel and then Excel sends out emails to various users about the 'processes".

I know this isn't a proper way to run data processing, but I am not listen to on this matter.

They are telling me that the single domain user account that they use to run their "processes" at night, stops working because the account can't connect to the Exchange server more than 7 times.

Can one domain user account logon to multiple PCs (more than 7) and send emails via an Exchange 2003 server, or is there a limit on the amount of connections a user can make to Exchange, from multiple PCs?

I think the limit is 250 but can be raised my editing the registry.  Check the exchange server logs and report any errors there.

not sure - can you look in the server logs?  There is bound to be somthing in there if a limitation is being reached.

In the Application log there are several Error events with an ID 1021.

Domain/Username was unable to connect as /O=Name/OU=HQ/cn=Recipients/cn=username. Error 0x4de.

The solutions I found was to give the domain account that was having the problem "View information store status" allow permission on the mailbox store.
