I have created the batch class to send separate email to each Opportunity owner based on their order outstanding by grouping the opportunity based on their ownership.

But while executing the data am facing the below issue. Kindly help here to resolve this issue.


EXCEPTION_THROWN [74]|System.LimitException: Too many Email Invocations: 11

    Fundamentally this is to do with limits. If you reference the documentation, you'll see that you can only call sendEmail 10 times in a given (synchronous or asynchronous) session.

There is no email limit from Apex. The limit is on the number of times the sendEmail() method can be invoked from Apex. Note that salesforce does not enforce a limit for Emails from Apex, however, there is a limit around number of times the sendEmail() method can be invoked from Apex in a transaction.

Best practice is to ensure that you're not calling the sendEmail() method inside a for loop

Sample code for SendEmail()

NOTE: The code provided below is an example. You should always test code before pushing to production.

//method to send mail to a list of users
public static void DispatchEmail() {
    List lstMails = new List();
      lst = 20;
       for(Integer i : lst) {
          Messaging.SingleEmailMessage message = getEmail();       
 //Construct the email message here by populating the values such as body, subject
                //Adding emails to the list       
   //Sending the email list in a single call.

public static Messaging.SingleEmailMessage getEmail() {
    Messaging.SingleEmailMessage mailMessage = new Messaging.SingleEmailMessage();
    return mailMessage;
