    We currently need to journal emails based on a subset of users. Currently, the only way to accomplish this is to use a distribution group. This cause a couple of issues:

    1st, it sends a group notification when a user has been added, which is confusing to users because the group is not intended to be used in the traditional sense.

    2nd - the current method adds an additional step in the setup process. Anytime a new user is added to a domain, they must also be added to the group; this opens the potential to be forgotten. The ideal situation is to have an option to filter by domain, which would be dynamic; once created, doesn't have to be touched.

    Ideally, to have the ability to send journal reports using additional criteria, such as by domain, would be the preferred solution.

    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.

When adding users to the group, we do not want users to receive notifications as the group is not intended to be used in the traditional sense; the current notification is confusing.
