Internal users can send emails to a Group, even if it is private.

You can hide the Group email address from the GAL by PowerShell.

Hi,

 

We have had a request come in that an owner wants to add around 100 users to a O365 group but they do not want the users receiving an email to advise they have been added to the group. The owner would like to send out their own email.
