Is it possible to associate more than one user id to one ?
If the user is a group of people using one user id, can the user id have more than one email addresses?
If yes, how many n is it going to affect system performance?

It's the other way around.
You can have one or many user_ids associated with one individual email target.
You can have one or many user_ids associated with one group email target. The group email would be defined within your email system, not QC.
In your email system is a group called <u>firstname.lastname@example.org</u>, which consists of 10 individual email addresses <u>email@example.com</u> - <u>firstname.lastname@example.org</u>. In QC, you're going to set up an associated user_id - say polymorph_grp - and then you'll be emailing from QC to polymorph_grp, which correlates to <u>email@example.com</u>.
System performance for single emails - regardless of whether to an individual or to a group - is dependent on your email system, rather than on QC.
Where you'll see potential QC performance degradation is with auto-generated emails on large data sets and to large user bases.
Thanks bkoenig for replying.
However, in case the group is the external supplier which give us lot of work. Now, any changes in project needs to be conveyed to them. This supplier side consists of PM, PL and no of associates. If we assign just a single id and the person is on leave, then?. So in that case , can few ids be associated, so that at least few of them get the autogenerated mails?
Why not ask your external supplier if they have a single email id on their email - then you could use that. Also in MS Outlook email groups can be set up with external email ids so you could get a distribution group set up with the ids that you want.
