Envelope limit reset after upgrading my yearly plan

  • 13 June 2024

We need to send some documents to thousands of suppliers but we just exceeded the limit we were not aware of.

I have just upgraded the yearly plan to Business Pro, so I want to know when the limit of envelopes resets. Also, how do I know that it won't be stopped by the “reasonable use policy”?
