Use the Maximum Number of Recipients to Display dialog box to specify how many recipients you want to display in the result pane of the Exchange Management Console (EMC).

By default, a maximum of 1,000 recipients is displayed. Increasing this value can be beneficial in large environments. However, increasing the value also increases the time it takes to display the results. Depending on the size of your organization, it may also have a performance impact on the domain controller to which you are connected.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Provisioning Recipients Permissions" section in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

  1. In the EMC console tree, click Recipient Configuration.

  2. In the action pane, click Modify the Maximum Number of Recipients to Display.

  3. In the Maximum number of recipients to display box, type the number of recipients that you want to display in the result pane. The number must be between 1 and 100,000.

  4. Click OK.
