Exchange 2010 default for distribution groups is to refuse delivery of unauthenticated mail, which we have changed. How do you edit that setting in hosted if we don’t have Exchange Management Console?

You can use either EAC or PowerShell:


Set-DistributionGroup “Name¿ -RequireSenderAuthenticationEnabled $True

I'm sorry if I wasn't clear. We can do it on-premise, however, we are migrating to full Office 365. How do we do this same change in Office 365 distribution groups?

The cmdlet/interface is the same, you just have to use the O365 environment.

Connect PowerShell to Exchange Online:


If you have hybrid, you will still manage everything from the On-prem environment.
