When you try to send an e-mail message, you may receive an error message
that states that youíve reached the limit for the number of messages that
you can send in a 24-hour period.
If you receive this error message, save your e-mail message, wait for 12 to
24 hours, and then try to send your message again.
To help reduce the amount of junk e-mail sent from Windows Live Hotmail
accounts, we limit the number of e-mail messages that you can send per day.
As you develop a reputation for not sending junk e-mail, we increase the
number of e-mail messages that you can send per day.
Source: Windows Live Hotmail Help: Youíve reached your message limit
You can send a maximum of 250 messages per day.
You can send a message to a maximum of 50 e-mail addresses at the same time.
These addresses can be distributed among the To, Cc, and Bcc lines, or they
can all be on one line.
You can send a message to a maximum of 100 e-mail addresses at the same
time. These addresses can be distributed among the To, Cc, and Bcc lines, or
they can all be on one line.
