I'm trying to add a group email or distribution email address in people web part but when I typed the name or the email address of the group, nothing is found in search directory field.

 

I can add a user email address without any issue.

@LemmorArravatib This is working as intended. The People Web Part is for showing People Objects, not Groups.
