Please allow period in distribution group list
The new distribution group list does not allow period in the email address. We have used this format for all our existing distribution list and although we can change it but it would look funny as some of our older email address uses Period as a spacer while the new ones are using underscore.
You can now add a dot to the email address of the group from OWA, mobile and Admin end points. The support for Desktop will follow soon. Thanks for your feedback.

The period has got to be allowed! The error message says we can embed a period, but how do we do it?

This is bloody ridiculous. The MS help/error prompt on this field even indicates a period is allowed. How are we supposed to run our businesses when you keep stuffing with the very basics of functionality.

This is essential for us as our current naming convention requires it. What reason is there for limiting it?
