New Release: Add Mail Contact as Guest available to FR(First Release) Tenants

Sahil Arora

We are happy to announce that now you can add Mail Contacts as guests in O365 Groups. This feature is fully deployed to First Release tenants & associated with Office 365 Roadmap ID 15043.

This was top requested feature in Guest Access. If tenant admins have enabled guest access, they don't need to do anything; End users will be able to add mail contacts just like they have been able to add guests before.


For more details here is the documentation: https://aka.ms/mailcntrelease


Update: 06/28: We are now 100% WW. Let us know if you are having some trouble using this feature.

Excellent, this has been a real issue previously.  I hope it comes to my Australian based tenants soon.

Any update on when this will release GA?

We are in the process of releasing to 100% GA & we don't have exact timeline yet.


However, we are already out to 10%GA tenants.

Working like a charm for my *Standard Release client, thank you very much! This feature was a roadblock for us for 5 months. Glad to finally be able to convert all their remaining DLs to O365 Groups.
