We plan to use the graph API to fetch mail (messages) as part of our application. As part of this application we will also be listing users, messages and attachments. We want to confirm that there is no cost associated with using the Graph API for mail (messages). I came across comments here confirming that there is no cost associated with fetching mail (messages), however based on this, teams recently has some changes where Graph API has associated costs. We want to confirm that Mail (messages) is still free.

    Hi @Kartik Anil Reddy

    I don't believe there is a cost for this from my experience in the past however, Microsoft directly would be able to confirm for sure.

    I did find this but as far as I'm aware, this wouldn't apply to you.

    As mentioned, best to ask Microsoft to be 100% certain.

    @Kartik Anil Reddy Microsoft Graph API is an integration of several services such as Users, Groups, Mail, Teams etc. When you mention email, I assume you are using Outlook mail REST API which is currently free. For more information, refer this document.
