Hi,

this is easy to do as a decimal point is standard char for email addresses.

Depending on what you prefer just use the wizard or powershell.
e.g. powershell command from technet:

New-DistributionGroup -Name "Managers.Group" -OrganizationalUnit "contoso.com/Users" -SamAccountName "Managers" -Type "Security" -alias "Managers.Group"

Hi,

yes you should be able to use EMC to modify the DL.

Open the management console and find your DL, hit properties on it.
navigate to the email-addresses tab and add another email address which includes the dot as required.

Now your DL is configured to receive emails from both email addresses listed.

Best regards
