Distributions lists are a very practical and sensible feature to send emails to multiple people at a time. This is very helpful for large teams to keep each one in their group informed about the latest developments. There are many more benefits in using distribution lists, as it can reduce unnecessary meetings, and trouble in communicating with each user separately, which is time-consuming. Also known as distribution groups, they can be organized based on a subject or by people who are part of a common work type. As they will need to communicate often than others, distribution groups will be a very useful feature in Microsoft 365.
