Delegate365 changelog version 3.2-mail enabled security groups

2015-02-23 | Toni Pohl

As announced here D365 version 3.2 has support of security groups. This also includes management of “mail enabled security groups”. The differences between “mail enabled security group” and “distribution group” are explained in TechNet, here´s a quick definition:

Mail-enabled security group: A mail-enabled security group is an Active Directory universal security group object that can be used to assign access permissions to resources in Active Directory and can also be used to distribute messages.

Distribution group: A distribution group is a mail-enabled Active Directory distribution group object that can be used only to distribute messages to a group of recipients.

One important differentiation is that f.e. “mail enabled security groups” act like a default “distribution group” but can also be used for setting permissions in SPO (since they are visible in SharePoint permission lists). “Distribution Groups” are simply for having an email address for a group of users, “send as” rights can be set, in mode “open” users can request membership and so on.
Both group types are stored in AAD.

So what´s new in D365?



So D365 version 3.2 provides management of security groups, mail enabled security groups and distribution groups within the Delegate365 portal.

Existing D365 tenants will be updated to version 3.2 this week.
