  @Christophe Fiessinger   I have a customer that is not going to be using Exchange Online. could you point me to some information that would explain how Groups will/won't work in this scenario.

Thanks

Why won't they leverage Exchange Online? Are they using EX on-prem?

They are moving from Lotus Notes to Ex on-prem. My customer was recently acquired by another firm and the purchaser has some very conservative views about the cloud (and technology in general). I'm still trying to figure out their real concerns, there are a lot of mixed messages and inconsistencies in their decision making. The MS account team has been working on this for a long time with some success, but they still have a long way to go.
