Dist Group in Outlook not adding all Group Members RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created a 365 Group with 61 members. Because of limitations in many of the recipients e-mail system, it required I make a Dist. Group to send and receive mail between them. I created a Dist Group from the 365 Group which shows all 61 members. I sent an e-mail and only 20 members got it. When I expanded the Dist Group in the e-mail heading it only showed 20 members out of the 61 I thought I loaded. I tried removing the Group from the Dist Group and repopulating it. Nothing. Also, it won't let me add members individually when I create the Dist Group. It only shows Groups in the directory from which to build, otherwise I'd have tried that. So, my problems are the Dist Group won't populate more than 20 addresses and I can't see individuals in my Contacts when trying to build a Dist Group. Any help would be great.

  • Hi,

    do you see the member when you run below command:-

    Get-UnifiedGroupLinks -Identity "Human Resources Department" -LinkType Members
    

    Use below command to add members:-

    Add-UnifiedGroupLinks -Identity "Legal Department" -LinkType Members -Links chris@contoso.com,michelle@contoso.com

  • Hello,

    Is this issue only occurs on this special distribution group? How about OWA?
    Can you login your Office 365 tenant, then double check the membership of this group?

    By my test, we cannot add group into a Office 365 group, only user mailbox is valid.
