Office 365 Maximum Recipients limitation

6,754 Views
Last Modified: 2017-03-11
I understand there is a limit in Office 365 to send 500 recipients, and Distribution Lists are treated as "1" recipient.

However, having a hybrid setup with AD on premises and all Distribution Lists hosted on prem, is there a way to increase this limit or easily "migrate" the DL's to Office 365?

I'm trying to account for mass distributions of lists, say 20,000 recipients and wondered if there was a way around this or I would have to break into chunks of 5,000
