    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.

    Hi! As we announced during Ignite this year, we are releasing an open source tool by the end of the year that can be used to pull in one or more security groups (nested or not) into the membership of large Microsoft 365 Groups. The membership will be pulled in as a flat list and kept in sync with the security group membership. Having Azure subscriptions is a pre-requisite to using this tool. If you have an urgent and immediate need for the tool, please reach out to GMMSupport@service.microsoft.com for a download link. Microsoft is releasing the tool without support, other than answering questions about how we use it internally. Link to the demo video: https://aka.ms/Admin1011

    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.
