Re: It's 2016 for cripes sake....

I know Exchange can limit the number of recipients, so I expect other mail servers can impose a limit. But I doubt Exchange discriminates between To, CC and BCC - it's only interested in limiting absolute numbers of addressees.

Outlook as a standalone doesn't appear to limit the number of addresses. Perhaps it could be programmatically "I notice your To: list for this email is a distribution group or exceeds 20 names - are you sure you want to do it this way and not use BCC?" Options are 'No', and 'Dear [deity] no, what was I thinking!'
