Exchange Online Protection transition from Forefront Online Protection for Exchange
Posted on 2014-01-29
Anyone here use Forefront Online Protection for Exchange (FOPE) and have your services transitioned over to Exchange Online Protection? The process is confusing, because Exchange Online Protection doesn't seem to show the distribution groups from the organization whereas FOPE used to show these. I've already installed the Azure Directory Sync Tool.
Under recipients in the Exchange Admin Center, all I see are "Users" and "Contacts". Nothing for distribution groups.
I called into their support but got a guy with a thick accent and probably overseas as there seemed to be a delay where he could hear me. I couldn't make much sense of what he was telling me and i don't think he understood what I was trying to relay to him. He seemed to relay that they are aware of the distribution groups on the back end but they won't show on EAC.
I don't want to switch over my MX records until I'm sure that EOP can handle emails to the distribution groups. help!
