We recommend an upper sending limit of 100k for email campaigns.

The upper limit is due to a time out issue that can occur on the servers during the preparation or processing of that email job. 
The upper sending limit is based on an email job using 1 merge field.  Additional merge fields may decrease the upper limit of any email job.
