Resolution

A message can be routed (hop) through many different servers before the message reaches its destination.  A hop is the transmittal of a mail message from one machine to another. The maximum number of hops that is allowable is set to prevent a message's being repeatedly misrouted.  The Maximum Hop Count for Messages in SBG is 49 and  It is not configurable.
