Are there new limits on emails in a Mail Merge?

Hello. In an earlier ACT version I was sending just under a thousand emails at a time.

 

Now, with Win10, ACT Pro v17 and Outlook 2016 I have been told the limit is sending 150 emails at a time.

 

Is that accurate? If so, why?

It's always been an issue (with Outlook, not Act!) of sending a large volume ...
The actual number will depend on the system resources available at the time, but 150-250 seems to be the typical limit that Outlook will start having issues.

There's an additional issue in that most ISPs now have limits on how many emails you can send in a single connection or per day. This is to prevent many of the people using their servers to send spam
