greetings

i have created a bunch of lists. Now i just noticed that the
max_num_recipients is set to 10 on all messages.

I have to go to all of my lists and set this to ' 0 '.
Why does this not make sense to me?

If i have 76 users, shouldn't all 76 users be allowed to recieve the
messages posted to the list without moderator approval?
What if more members join?, So therefore i have to eliminate this
number and add a zero. Shouldn't it be 76+ ?

Is there a way to change this setting for all of my users?

    Yes. AFAIS that means that messages with more than ten recipients (in
    To: and CC:, I presume) will be moderated. That does make sense as
    anti-spam measure.

    Of course.

    Thank you!
    Now I understand.

    So if users are posting to the this they should refrain from CC'ing 20
    of their friends also.
    got it. Thanks.

    Because you are misunderstanding the parameter :-) This refers to the
    number of address that can be in a To: or CC: field of a message sent
    to a list. It's a simple anti-spam control. It does not affect how
    many subscribers can receive a post.
