To my knowledge Outlook itself doesn’t hold a limit for the amount of addresses that you can send to within a single email. ISPs or corporate mail administrators usually have one of the following limits set or a combination of them:
- amount of recipients for a single email
- amount of emails that you can send in an hour
- amount of emails that you can send in a day

These limits are set to protect their mail server from excessive use or even abuse by spammers. You’ll have to contact your ISP or corporate mail administrator to find out which exact email policies they have in place.

The default limit is 500 recipients, but you can change that value as needed.

Nick is right. 500 is your default.

I don't know if there's an easy test.  I'd just ask them.

There is some policy that is blocking that email.  It may be due to its contents, the addresses you are sending it to, or one of a number of configurable policies.

The easiest solution is to have IT go through the logs to get more detail about why that particular email is being blocked.

You'll get exactly the same message.  But the problem is there are a thousand different reasons that you get a "550 denied by policy" error.  You need to isolate which policy is blocking the email.

I can't say for certain based on what you've provided, but if you've sent an email to 500+ recipients in the past, then it's clear that there is no limit on sending. (Or the limit is higher than 500).

It is the destination server that is sending back the 500 denied by policy
