Question

By default, as an anti spam safeguard, groups in GMS will check a message to determine if there are more than 5 "To:" addresses. If there are, the message will be rejected with the subject "Post contains multiple email addresses"

Answer

It is possible to set a user variable for the group that will allow these messages to be processed.

Initially, ensure you have the ability to configure user variables.

Go to Security>Control and ensure the option Allow direct editing of system variables is checked.

Go to Mail>Users>User Variables and select the group you wish to accept a higher number of To: clauses.

The following new variable should be added:

MaxToAddresses with a value of the limit you wish to configure.

Click Add variable

Note: It is recommended that this value is not changed to prevent Anti Spam abuse on your system.
