Hi All We are using AD sync to sync our on prem AD to Azure; but how do I replicate our structure; when I look at the Azure AD there is just a list of 1000 employees with no structure in other words it seems that the AD Connector isn't configured to map our OU's Any ideas?

There are no OUs in Azure AD. If you need to reference the on-premises AD's OU for a given user, you can use the OnPremisesDistinguishedName attribute, see here for more details: https://www.quadrotech-it.com/blog/reporting-organizational-unit-information-azure-ad-powershell/

that's explains it!! OK will have to have a re think on the Dynamic exchange e mail lists we use.
