I am considering buying MapPoint for a project at work. But wanted to make sure it can do what we need.

Basically I have a list of 700 zip codes and need to get the distance (in miles) and drive time between each. I am guessing it would be from centroid to centroid.

Can this be done in mappoint? Do I have to analyze the pairs one at a time or can I do them all at once?

You could write your zipcodes to an Excel spreadsheet and import them as pushpins.
You could then find your distance/travelties by calculating each route one at a time.

There are a number of add-in tools that will automate the process, including our MileCharter product:
