    Is this something that is even on the radar? Our org would love to take advantage of groups instead of distribution lists, but this is the key functionality keeping us from being able to do it. I know we're all tired of getting the "you should make a group instead!" prompt when we go to make a distro list, but the reality is that there just isn't parity there between the two services.

    Furthermore, can you please change the "Try This Instead" suggestion that is highlighted as the best answer? It's explicitly the oposite of what we are asking for here.

    This is a pretty integral feature for most organizations that needs to be fixed if Microsoft _actually_ wants to phase out distro lists for groups. It would be great to at least get an acknowledgment that this is a known pain point instead of a disregarding and incorrect answer.

    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.
