What is the experience if a SharePoint Site Collection or Email Address Already exists?

What will happen if we have already provisioned SharePoint sites collections that have the same name as new group that a user tries to provision?


"https://mytenant.sharepoint.com/sites/TeamX" (regular sharepoint team site already exists)


Email address teamx@company.com already exists


User tries to create Yammer group called "TeamX"

These are both topics that are still being determined. Follow Office 365 Groups: naming policy in Azure Active Directory for more info: https://products.office.com/en-us/business/office-365-roadmap?featureid=38603
AAD allows for duplicate group display names, so you'll have a group and a SP site collection with the same display name.
I'm not talking about Display Names, I'm talking about physical sharepoint urls and email addresses (which cannot have duplicates).
