This option is a must to convert distribution lists to Office 365 groups. There are some groups where you would NEVER want members to leave the group. Most of the time you would ALWAYS want the members in these groups to receive the email in their personal inbox too. Seems to me administrators need the option to turn off the ability for members to leave a group AND another to force the member to follow the group so the member always gets a copy of the email in their inbox. This is important for instance, for a Human Resources email to all employees. For us, all employees is not everyone in our domain. Both employees and contractors share the same domain so a distribution list or office 365 group must separate the workforce. We have a desire to reduce and reuse as well. Distribution lists cannot be used in SharePoint permissions but Office 365 groups can. Prefer to have 1 place to update members of 'Employees' rather than an Office 365 group, outlook distribution list, and/or SharePoint Group!
