We have created a group under our mailbox in Office365 and would like to be able to share files to external users.  I have checked all permission for external user under Sharepoint and it is set to allow to share with external users and anonymous user, however when I try to share a file to an external email address via groups I receive an error message that says "Administrative polices don't allow sharing with people outside your organization. "  What settings and where do I need to make a change to allow this to happen?

Groups dont yet support external users, this includes sharing files to external users.
