Note to IMail 25 users: Each  list also counts as a user. For example, if you have 20 users and 5 lists, you have met the limit and will not be able to create new users or lists. If you attempt to create a new user or list after reaching 25, you will receive an error message. For more information, see IMail Server 25 Overview.
