Our service is designed to protect the resources and ensure that certain users will not overwhelm it and cause latency for others. This limit is in place to protect against spike sending that we wish to discourage. As such, we have no plans to change the limit for regular mailboxes.
Where possible, we encourage customers who have these requirements to seek solutions that do not send emails all at once, can make use of DLs, or use services like Dynamics or third-party services to send large volumes of emails to customers or student and parents.
However, we are thinking about alternatives we can provide to solve this issue of higher sending for automated email scenarios to address this customer need.

This is a dumb a$& limit when Outlook offers itself a mail merge function. Running the mail merge with over 30 separate email addresses usually causes problems with the 30 messages per minute limitation!!
Come on Microsoft!
