I hope you are doing well.

Please guide me on how to automatically add a new email account to a distribution group in Office 365 upon creation. Additionally, I would like to know the steps to add an existing email account auto-add to a distribution group.


Thank you for your assistance.

    To automatically add new or existing email accounts to a distribution group in Office 365, you can use dynamic distribution groups. These groups update their membership based on criteria you define. Here's how:

    1. Sign in to Office 365 Admin Center.
    2. Navigate to Exchange Admin Center.
    3. Create a new dynamic distribution group, specifying criteria for membership.
    4. Add existing email accounts manually or define additional criteria.
    5. Test the group to ensure it adds members correctly.
    6. Monitor periodically to ensure it functions as expected.
