Topic: Limit in Bcc recipients?


I'm having issues sending informational email to my clients using iRedMail.

The way that I'm used to do this is:

Sending Account: myaccount@mydomain.com
Recipient: myaccount@mydomain.com
Bcc: Here goes my clients email addresses, at this time are over 300 addresses, maybe 400.
Subject and Message Body: Informational.

The problem is that there seems to be a limit of recipients for Bcc. I tested this way of sending with 20+ recipients and the message got sent ok. I tried sending this from RoundCube and after 2-3 minutes I haven't got any warning message but it's still processing; Thunderbird stalls at Delivering Mail.

I have used this method for years, but since I switched to DigitalOcean and installed iRedMail, I got this issue.

Is this a configuration issue? Where should I look, what should I change? Is there another way to this? I haven't tried yet sending this using the postmaster account (action that I would like to avoid if possible).

Thanks in advance,

UPDATE: After leaving Roundcube for about 10 minutes doing the job, the messages got sent. That will work for me, but it's quite slow considering that I used to do this once a week from Thunderbird and I haven't got this issue.

If somebody has an idea... If not, I will stick to RoundCube for this task.


Re: Limit in Bcc recipients?

Hi choliz,

Does removing 'reject_unknown_recipient_domain' in Postfix parameter 'smtpd_recipient_restrictions' solve your issue?


Does my reply help a little? How about buying me a cup of coffee ($5) as an encouragement?
