    Mail disable them

    Use the Disable-DistributionGroup cmdlet to remove email capabilities from existing mail-enabled security groups and distribution groups.

    The security group will still be in AD after that.

    Hi @The Exchanger ,

    As Andy said, you can disable these distribution group with this cmdlet:

    Disable-DistributionGroup -Identity "SG01"  

    A guidance that maybe helpful: Mail-enable or mail-disable existing security groups

    Best regards,
    Zhengqi Lou
