Enable Dynamic (Plus) Email Addresses for Distribution Lists
The recent plus addressing feature (https://office365.uservoice.com/forums/273493-office-365-admin/suggestions/18612754-support-for-dynamic-email-aliases-in-office-365) appears to only work for mailboxes, not distribution lists. The primary reason we wanted this feature was to enable teams without permission to create distribution lists or modify the alternate email addresses on their distribution lists to effectively create unique addresses on the fly. There are a number of services which require unique email addresses be used to create each account and this would allow us to easily tie those accounts back to a single existing DL without engaging our Enterprise Services team each time to add a new address. Please allow this feature to work for groups as well as users.
We have completed work to expand plus addressing support to include DLs and Groups. This will roll out to the service over the next month or so, so please expect this functionality to saturate in the service in December.

Thank you Robert Gemmell for requesting the exact feature I was looking for, and thank you Sean S for getting this feature rolled out so quickly.
