Office 365 Groups in GAL - any options?

Frequent Contributor

Are there any options for not showing O365 Groups in the GAL?


It would seem if that if a group is Private that not eveyone should be able to email it. No?


Thank you,

Yes, powershell ...


Set-UnifiedGroup groupname -HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled $true

@Eric Adler

Hiding a Group from the GAL, though, does not prevent other users to send email to the Group (if they know the address).

To limit this possibility consider also:

Set-UnifiedGroup -Identity groupname -AcceptMessagesOnlyFromSendersOrMembers groupname
You can also configure who can send e-mails to the Group in a very granular way using Powershell
