A distribution list is a list of e-mail addresses, either in a standard e-mail program (e.g., Microsoft Outlook) or on a server system (e.g., Active Directory). A user can send an e-mail to the distribution list, which automatically shares the message to all the e-mail addresses within it. This action makes managing many recipients easier as you don't have to select or type to them individually.

Distribution lists can be as large as you want after the minimum of two e-mail addresses is met. There is virtually no limit to how many e-mail addresses it could contain.
