I suspect you don't understand how emails are counted. Each list message 
to each recipinet probably counts as one email. If I'm understanding you 
correctly, your are sending 50 to 60 messages per day to 360 users. 50 
times 360 is 18,000 outgoing messages per day.

That fits with my assumption above.
