    Just received an update from MS saying "be aware that using Dynamic Membership rules will define membership criteria that will force individuals to remain as members of a group" - this doesn't address the issue. The issue is not that members LEAVE the group; in this case the issue is that members can UNSUBSCRIBE from the group and therefore they stop receiving group emails in their inbox. Some group owners still use their groups as DLs - it's vital they can rely on group members remaining subscribed.

    Thanks to everyone for your feedback and votes on this item. We’re working through a couple of options and hope to have more information shortly. It’s a very difficult problem to solve since group membership is consumed across many different aspects of Microsoft 365. Thanks for your patience and keep the feedback coming!

    While you cannot customize the default welcome mail for Office 365 Groups, disabling the welcome mail is possible with an extra parameter in the Set-UnifiedGroup cmdlet in Exchange PowerShell: -UnifiedGroupWelcomeMessageEnabled:$false. See https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/exchange/users-and-groups/set-unifiedgroup

    Use this as a part of a custom group creation flow if you would like to restrict and/or customize the welcome mail for many groups across your tenant.

    FWIW there's a setting on the O365 Group: "WelcomeMessageEnabled" which controls this behaviour. Per https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Office-365-Groups/How-to-remove-the-Welcome-Message-when-a-new-member-joins-a/td-p/56573 "You can use the following command to suppress the welcome message for any new users added to the group as a member. ... pass "false" as the value to suppress the welcome message.

    Set-UnifiedGroup <groupname> -UnifiedGroupWelcomeMessageEnabled:$<true/false>

    This should probably be posted on the Teams Uservoice at https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com

    I'm voting for this because it's very similar to my own requirement, although I'm coming at this from a different angle. My POV is that it's incredibly confusing for users to have multiple 'archives': in the 'live' mailbox you click the "Archive" button and all it does is move the email from Inbox into another folder (usually named Archive) in the same mailbox. But then after a while messages are moved by the system into the "Online Archive" (which, to add to the confusion, is sometimes labelled the "In-Place Archive"). It's a constant battle trying to explain to end-users where their messages have got to.

    The new Office 365 Secure Score service (https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/office365security/new-security-analytics-service-finding-and-fixing-risk-in-office-365/) gives 50 points if you enable MFA for all global admins. Global admins are highly likely to be running Powershell. MFA support in Powershell when connecting to Exchange Online is becoming vital.
