As the account system is deprecated, I am not using it. But when I try use json-rpc call sendmany, I get the error:

"Account has insufficient funds (code -6)"

But when I call getbalance I have more than enough funds

It is possible to use without an account. Just use "" as from-account.

Example:

sendmany "" '{"mzjqvrPTipexdXzJbCjZExs8keg7nMf4M3":0.01,"mqQ69fPZEeJomEzG85FHfrKQ66x3w6oXwp":0.02}'

Watch out: It will tell you Account has insufficient funds (code -6) when you not have enough funds even if you don't use accounts.

Help:

sendmany "fromaccount" {"address":amount,...} ( minconf "comment" ["address",...] )

Send multiple times. Amounts are double-precision floating point numbers.

Arguments:
1. "fromaccount"         (string, required) DEPRECATED. The account to send the funds from. Should be "" for the default account
2. "amounts"             (string, required) A json object with addresses and amounts
    {
      "address":amount   (numeric or string) The bitcoin address is the key, the numeric amount (can be string) in BTC is the value
      ,...
    }
3. minconf                 (numeric, optional, default=1) Only use the balance confirmed at least this many times.
4. "comment"             (string, optional) A comment
5. subtractfeefrom         (array, optional) A json array with addresses.
                           The fee will be equally deducted from the amount of each selected address.
                           Those recipients will receive less bitcoins than you enter in their corresponding amount field.
                           If no addresses are specified here, the sender pays the fee.
    [
      "address"          (string) Subtract fee from this address
      ,...
    ]

Result:
"txid"                   (string) The transaction id for the send. Only 1 transaction is created regardless of 
                                    the number of addresses.

Examples:

Send two amounts to two different addresses:
> bitcoin-cli sendmany "" "{\"1D1ZrZNe3JUo7ZycKEYQQiQAWd9y54F4XZ\":0.01,\"1353tsE8YMTA4EuV7dgUXGjNFf9KpVvKHz\":0.02}"

Send two amounts to two different addresses setting the confirmation and comment:
> bitcoin-cli sendmany "" "{\"1D1ZrZNe3JUo7ZycKEYQQiQAWd9y54F4XZ\":0.01,\"1353tsE8YMTA4EuV7dgUXGjNFf9KpVvKHz\":0.02}" 6 "testing"

Send two amounts to two different addresses, subtract fee from amount:
> bitcoin-cli sendmany "" "{\"1D1ZrZNe3JUo7ZycKEYQQiQAWd9y54F4XZ\":0.01,\"1353tsE8YMTA4EuV7dgUXGjNFf9KpVvKHz\":0.02}" 1 "" "[\"1D1ZrZNe3JUo7ZycKEYQQiQAWd9y54F4XZ\",\"1353tsE8YMTA4EuV7dgUXGjNFf9KpVvKHz\"]"

As a json rpc call
> curl --user myusername --data-binary '{"jsonrpc": "1.0", "id":"curltest", "method": "sendmany", "params": ["", "{\"1D1ZrZNe3JUo7ZycKEYQQiQAWd9y54F4XZ\":0.01,\"1353tsE8YMTA4EuV7dgUXGjNFf9KpVvKHz\":0.02}", 6, "testing"] }' -H 'content-type: text/plain;' http://127.0.0.1:8332/
