I am new to trying to figure out the integration of teams into our environment. We rely heavily on distribution lists. I'm personally used to shared mailboxes, but our end users are not. How can I get emails coming into the teams address to forward out like a distribution list into the team members inbox? Thank you for your help.

@Chris Webb It's our sales team trying to learn to use it. They are wanting outside senders to be able to send to the inbox as well. I agree on the not using email and using Teams instead. They are interested in the collaboration options and the shared calendars, but want the email inbox to behave like a DL.

@DanielH2180 I needed to do this too and I just found something.
In Teams, I clicked the three dots, then 'Open in Sharepoint', then on the left of that window is menu item called 'Conversations'. Clicking that opened Outlook Web, with an option to send an email to email address for the channel. Don't know why it's so hidden but it seems to work!

I think we finally figured out how to do this ourselves. Some of the other respondents above helped.
After this box is clicked then emails sent through Outlook to the team will go to their inboxes (otherwise it just goes to the Team Group, which they are unlikely to see).
Hope this helps somebody!

@GoceR Trying to wrap my head around Msft's peculiar logic too.
First roadblock is that the channel email address provided in Teams isn't what you need. It has to be <groupname>@tenant.onmicrosoft.com not the @amer.teams.ms address. But of course Msft doesn't tell you that anywhere....
You can get to the settings for that either as mentioned above or via the Azure portal at /Microsoft_AAD_IAM/GroupDetailsMenuBlade/Overview...
But even when I change the settings as below, I still don't get the email in my own inbox. Is that because I'm sending the email? Who knows....Really, Msft, get off your a** and make this a bit more usable. Clearly the capability is there - you just have to de-Microsoft the process.
