How to send email per batch

Hi there,

 

I currently have a large email list that can go up to 800 users. The list is pulled from a SharePoint list where I keep everything currently using the Office SendEmail to email those users.

 

However just found out that theres a limitation (on our exchange system) where you can only add 500 users per email.

 

So i am looking to see if anyone would know of a formula that could send emails by batch. 

 

Something like: 

Clear(Email_Batch);
If(
    CountRows(Sharepoint_Source) >500,
    Collect(Email_Batch, Some_Function_to_get_the-First_500_Entries_VIA_Sharepoint)
    Collect(Email_Batch, Some function_to_get_remaining_emails)
    ForAll(
      Email_Batch, 
      Office365.SendEmail( User.Email, "SubJect Line","Body Text", { BCC: EMAIL_LIST_FROM_BATCH })
    ,
    Office365.SendEmail( User.Email, "SubJect Line","Body Text", { BCC: Sharepoint_Source})

)


would someone know how to do this?

Then I expect you would have to batch that out by layering the FirstN functions.  FirstN(FirstN(data,1000),500) or something like that.

Could you do something with FirstN(Table, 500) and LastN(Table, length(Table) - 500) as long as you know you'll be less than 1000 that should get the records in two batches of 500 or less.

While this works in thoery if im always under 1000, what about when i start going over 1000 subscribers? 
How would I filter 3 batches of 500? Would you know?
