Contact Group Limits
The following limits are applied to Contact Groups.
|Contact Groups||Recipients per Group|
9 Limits apply to individual Contact Groups configured by each user, as well as Enterprise Contact Groups configured by Enterprise Administrators
10 The Contact Groups feature is only available for Enterprise Plans
Rate limits have been implemented to protect our service from issues that may arise when a single user generates too much traffic. A standard rate limit of 5000 requests over a 5 minute period is applied to all SendSafely user accounts. When the rate limit is exceeded, our servers will return an HTTP status code of "403 Forbidden".
Once the rate limit is triggered, you will continue to receive a "403 Forbidden" response until the number of requests drops below the 5 minute threshold.
The following limits are applied to Trusted Browser Keys and API Keys
|Trusted Browser Keys||API Keys|
11 API Keys are only supported for Enterprise Accounts
