Hi All,

I have a client that send 1300 email to customers in one email for there newsletter.  As they are on TS it locked up there internet and they cannot remote anymore as the ISP is not handling it very well.

Firstly how do i stop this email from sending in Exchange 2010?

Secondly can you send to that many contacts in one email?

the default is 5000 recipients i believe and as long as they appear in BCC it will work

you can run
Set-TransportConfig -MaxRecipientEnvelopeLimit 1000

use the cmdlet "Get-Message" to locate the message then run
Remove-Message -Filter {Subject -eq "Mass mailing subject"} -WithNDR $false
