Email Groups

I need to create a few groups in office 365. What is the difference between a distribution group, a dynamic distribution group, and a security group? I just need to be able to create the group as a contact, and then have it go to each member in the group...

Distribution group is an email only group. All members receive email sent to the address of the group.
A dynamic distribution group is the same, but the members are added based on a query that is used to define users that should belong to the group. So you could create a dynamic distribution group that includes members of another group or people who work at a specific location without having to add each user to the group manually.
Security groups allow you to assign permissions to things as well as send email to members, so you can put people in a security group and then give them permission to a sharepoint site or a shared mailbox without having to add each user to the permission list.
