Is there an email limit for partner users

HI Users,

Is there a email limit for sending emails to partner users? some thing like daily digest

I am not getting more than 10 emails

Hi,

Here is the Email limits cheatsheet

https://na10.salesforce.com/help/pdfs/en/salesforce_app_limits_cheatsheet.pdf

Here is what you might be missing:

• If you use SingleEmailMessage to email your org’s internal users, specifying the user’s ID in setTargetObjectId means the email doesn’t count toward the daily limit. However, specifying internal users’ email addresses in setToAddresses means the email does count toward the limit

For licensed community users you don't need to worry about limits.

Thanks

Hi SAHG,

Limits for email and email templates are given per edition.

There’s no limit on sending individual emails to contacts, leads, person accounts, and users in your org directly from account, contact, lead, opportunity, case, campaign, or custom object pages.

Using the API or Apex, you can send single emails to a maximum of 1,000 external email addresses per day based on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). Single emails sent using the Salesforce application don't count toward this limit. 

There’s no limit on sending individual emails to contacts, leads, person accounts, and users in your org directly from account, contact, lead, opportunity, case, campaign, or custom object pages.

Please refer page 24 and 25 in below link.

and also refer this post which has the same discussion.

Hi SAHG,

You can use something like below according to your requirement.

In the below sample code I am iterating over a list of partner users ("lstPortalUser"). This list is created by me as per my requirement. You can create the same list as per your requirement. 

 
List<Messaging.SingleEmailMessage> mails = new List<Messaging.SingleEmailMessage>();
for(User portalUser :lstPortalUser)
{   
   Messaging.SingleEmailMessage mail = new Messaging.SingleEmailMessage();
   string body = 'Hi '+ portalUser.LastName;  
   mail.setSubject('Test Subject');
   mail.setTargetObjectId(portalUser.Id);
   mail.setSaveAsActivity(false);
   mail.setHtmlBody(body);
   mails.add(mail);
}
Messaging.sendEmail(mails);

And also please refer below link which has a full code.

Thanks and Regards

Hi SAHG,

As I had mentioned in my first comment, your problem is that you are using "Mail.ToAddresses" in your code, which has very low limits. However, you should use setTargetObjectId(Set<Id> partnerUserIds) method, you will have no email limits. Here is the comment again for your reference

• If you use SingleEmailMessage to email your org’s internal users, specifying the user’s ID in setTargetObjectId means the email doesn’t count toward the daily limit. However, specifying internal users’ email addresses in setToAddresses means the email does count toward the limit

So instead of creating a Map of PartnerName and sendToAddresses in your code, create a set of user id of partners and then use that in setTargetObjectIds method. This should solve the issue for you.
