Hi

We have a couple of Kerio mail servers 8.4.2 on windows 2008 and we have the max number of recipients on a message set to 100. However we know from logs and chatting to users, that it doesnt appear to be working. I have just seen the log with 300 recipients on one go out. I assume that the setting is for outgoing emails to reduce outgoing spamming? Has anyone else got a problem with this and is there a fix?

What client do they use?
That setting is for SMTP only to reduce account guessing when delivering messages without user authentication.

Mainly outlook and kerio connect but could potentially be webmail or any other. If that setting is to reduce account guessing when delivering messages without user authentication, what is max number of unknown recipients and how do we limit the number of recipients in a single outgoing email?

There is a setting, which is "max number of messages per hour from one IP address." However that will only limit for clients sending via SMTP. It will have no affect for Outlook (http) or Kerio client. For those you will need an external solution.

So there is now way to limit the max number of recipients in an outbound email as there is in Exchange? The only option would be to move from Kerio or have Kerio send via a smart host that does?

re http://forums.kerio.com/mv/msg/15683/62775/#msg_62775 it suggests that the max number of recipients should work? If someone is sending an email with more recipients than the max setting, even if they connect with http, it will still have to send out via smtp and should fail?

Max recipients doesn't work. Thant only works for smtp connections. If you add a Barracuda spam firewall on outgoing mail that will take care of it. It also does a nice job on incoming mail.
