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?

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.
