I have a client with an aging Exchange Server. For years they've run regional distribution lists for their 3.5K members.
Basically we have an organisational unit for each region and then contacts in each OU for each member.
Then we have dynamic Distribution lists that include all contacts in Each OU.
From there we use the Limited Allowed senders to allow external authorised senders to email the regions so the server will send their email to all members in each region.
It looks like we can do similar on 365 - Make a bunch of contacts and add them to distribution lists.
From what I've read each address book distribution list is only counted as one recipient for the sender.
What are the limits for the outbound mail when sending to the Distribution lists? The most they'd send in a day would be one email to all regions so 3.5K emails. I guess they might very occasionally do it twice to correct an error or something so maybe 7K emails. A lot of the time its just individual regions being emailed.
Will this work - I've found lots of talk of the limits but not really a definitive answer for sending to distribution lists.
I've suggested Mail Chip but they really want to use existing mail clients to send the emails due to user tech limitations and its member information and isn't related to selling or marketing so they don't require the click / read information of something like mail chimp.
Does this sound like it'll work - We'll then be updating the lists from time to time pragmatically (Powershell or API's) to keep them relevant to their membership database.
Any help greatly appreciated as what I'm finding in documents online is often contradictory.
