Dynamic Distribution Groups

Mass MailEmail Message letter mail

Dynamic distribution groups (DDGs) are a great way to manage groups in Live@edu, especially ones where the recipient list might change frequently or unpredictably. For example, you might want an “All Pupils” distribution group that sends a mail to every pupil in the school, but what about pupils who have left, or ones who have joined?

Or how about when you want to send a message out to a very large number of people, say over 50,000? A DDG counts as one message, so you can break down that number into smaller chunks and nest the DDGs inside a normal static distribution group.
