This is a configurable limit on the Transport Service in Exchange which is set by default to 20. You can view this setting by using the following command in Exchange Management Shell:

Get-TransportServer | FT MaxOutboundConnections,MaxPerDomainOutboundConnections

To raise the limit of 20 concurrent connections to (for example) 50 concurrent connections you can use the Set-TransportServer command in EMS:

Get-TransportServer | Set-TransportServer -MaxPerDomainOutboundConnections 50

This way the web application is able to send out (large amounts of) SMTP messages again.
