Azure groups welcome email

Kareem Soliman 0 Reputation points

A department in my company requested a new group on Azure, which I created with an assigned owner. However, members received a "welcome email" directly from the owner (not on behalf), which raised security concerns. I have the PowerShell command to disable it in the future, but now the director of this department requesting an official Microsoft URL as proof. Can anyone provide a resource that can help me find this information?

    Hi @Kareem Soliman

    I understand your situation. It seems that the welcome email for new members in Microsoft 365 groups is enabled by default, if you want to disable it, try the following command:

    Set-UnifiedGroup -Identity "" -UnifiedGroupWelcomeMessageEnable:$false

    Microsoft official document source:

    Hope this helps.
