How does exchange 2003 count email recipients?

I want to know if I restrict a user not to send an email more than 20 recipients what will happen if user sends an email to a group that has more than 20 members in it.  A group will be considered as one recipient or as it has members?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

In Exchange 2003, a group is considered individual recipients. Therefore a group of 500 will be treated as 500 recipients. This behaviour changes in Exchange 2007, where a group is counted as a single recipient.

It will be counted as the total number of its recipients, this means if it contains 500 recipients, it will be counted as 500 recipients, if restriction is applied , it will prevent sending.
