Contact Lists (Distribution) Vs Office 365 Groups
"One of the main obstacles I faced when making Distribution Lists in remembering that Office 365 refers to them as Contact Lists"
A Contact List is a grouping of two or more email addresses. The purpose of a Contact List is to eliminate the the timely process of entering individual email addresses by using one address to email multiple people. Attachments can be added to the Contact List email to share among those in the list.
An Office 365 Group is a cross between the traditional distribution list and a shared mailbox. It stores previously distributed e-mails as discussion threads. A Group also has storage (OneDrive Account) assigned to it that members can use to share files and folders with all group members.
