I am using Postfix to send mass mails to our customers. But at a time I can only mail to 1000 recepients (mail IDs in Bcc). If I increase the count it says too many recepients.

How can I increase the recepients limit?

Why not just send 1k at a time? – ceejayoz Feb 2 '12 at 16:53

As described in the postfix documentation the parameter is smtpd_recipient_limit.

So if you want 2000 as a new limit, the following will do it:

# postconf -e smtpd_recipient_limit=2000
