The Batch User Creation option is just limited to creating the user account, all options will have to be configured once the account is created, however you can upload the user's white lists and block lists once the user is created. It will just be a separate step.
The Bach Creation can be used to 'create' the Distribution list, but yes it will innitially show up as a User, and it can then be switch to Distribution List.
If you have any further questions, please reply or contact your support organization.
I am confused then on a point of the DL, is the DL used as the front end of the alias or the back end of the alias?
to a DL on the exchange server w/o opening up our DL's on exchange to the outside
or am i backwards?
I assume the alias limitation cannot be changed? that it's limited to 5 per user account correct?
The alias limit can be increased up to 10 through the organization that supports your product. A phone call or service request to that team should take care of it for you.
On the SaaS Control Console, the Distribution List under Account Management>Users is just a special user type to identify distribution lists in the control console as valid, without having the same type of login abilities as a user. No management of the direction of the messages are handled on the SaaS Control Console, all of that is handled by the SMTP Server once we hand the message off.
Hope that clarifies.
