 You could try making a content filtering rule that counts the number of @ symbols in the To: field.

You should also do it for CC and BCC maybe to check for that fields also, you can do it with different conditions and use OR between them.

But it's looking impossible to check both to,cc and bcc like 14 people in To, 4 in CC and 2 in BCC.

As far as I know you can setup a content filter policy for the envelop recipients and also for the data section including to/cc/bcc.
In case put both conditions and set any of the conditions must meet.

So you could check for 20 or more occurences of the @ and then put your action in place.



Best regards!
