SMTP now limits senders to 1000 recipients per hour?

Post by dslchiphead » Wed Jun 13, 2012 3:36 pm

I noticed when I viewed the latest Release Notes for all ME releases since V6.03, that it mentions this:
IMP SMTP now limits senders to 1000 recipients per hour by default.
What exactly does that mean to me. Someone sending mail can only sent to 1,000 people per hour? That will not work for sending mailing lists I own. Can this be changed?

Can someone comment on this?

Thanks!

That setting is apparently set to 100 per hour (and was a typo in the release notes).
If you are using MailEnable lists or groups, then this limit will not apply (it only applies for those addressing to more than 100 recipients per hour via SMTP inbound).

It is an inbound restriction only. You can always increase it under the security tab of the SMTP connector.

The benefit of this setting is that it limits the amount of abuse a spammer can achieve should they determine a user password.

Thanks Andrew. I am relieved. If it was outbound then we would have a major problem.

Thanks for replying!
