You have tried to select too many rows error when selecting many items in a folder in OWA

Original KB number:   2394261


When you use OWA for Exchange Server 2010 SP1 and try to select a large number of items in a folder, you receive the following error:

You've tried to select too many rows. Select fewer rows and try again.


This behavior is by design.


Select a maximum of 40 items in a folder for any actions required, such as Copy To Folder or Move operations.
