Q

How many users can be in a global distribution list in Active Directory?

In Active Directory, how many users can there be in a global distribution list?
The number of recipients in a Distribution List (DL) is not limited within Microsoft Exchange. Microsoft has confirmed that as many as 6000 recipients can be contained within a DL. The expansion time of such a DL can be long, however. DLs can also be nested within other DLs. ( http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;149191)
