confMAX_RCPTS_PER_MESSAGE MaxRecipientsPerMessage [infinite]
If set, allow no more than the specified number of recipients in an SMTP
envelope. Further recipients receive a 452 error code (i.e., they are
deferred for the next delivery attempt).
Also see http://www.sendmail.org/~ca/email/doc8.9/op-sh-5.html
for additional information on this setting
From release notes 8.9.0:
"Add the MaxRecipientsPerMessage option: this limits the number of
recipients that will be accepted in a single SMTP transaction. After
this number is reached, sendmail starts returning "452 Too many
recipients" to all RCPT commands. This can be used to limit the
number of recipients per envelope (in particular, to discourage
use of the server for spamming). Note: a better approach is to
restrict relaying entirely. "
(By default, Sendmail put the limit about the number of recipients
that a mail can have to 100. A good value for start testing it is 30.)
And finally, read the INSTALL file very carefully before you attempt to
upgrade and you should do fine.
