Hey everyone, I need more insight on this please, there is a feature within Microsoft Teams that allows a user to exchange chat messages with any other external party just by entering their email address in the recipient of the chat provided that this feature is enabled on both parties. This feature is enabled by default. Please assess to what extent we have this feature enabled in the Tenant and make a change request to disabled it, if enabled.
