The maximum number of recipient for gmail is 500.

Is there any limit in the number of recipient using swaks?

swaks -t recipient1@mail.com -t recipient2@mail.com -t recipient3@mail.com [...]

The Gmail limit (n recipients per mail, m mails/day) is enforced on the SMTP server to prevent an user from spamming; it is not a hard limit due to the specific command Google uses to send mail. As such, using a command line tool to connect to Gmail SMTP server won't change this limit.

Note that passing 500 recipients to swaks (or to any other command) might fail due to the very long list of arguments, not because there's a limit in the number of recipients (which can easily be bypassed by sending 10 mails with 50 recipients each).
