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.

You can get the info directly from the team members on Yammer/O365 Network. Or on the roadmap: http://fasttrack.microsoft.com/roadmap?filters=#I-35213

Office 365 Groups: guest access support

Guest access support will enable teams using Office 365 Groups to easily collaborate with external team members (members that are not part of their organization/tenant). Guest users will have access to all of the groups assets: inbox, files, calendar and notebook. We'll introduce a number of administration controls to help you manage guests in Groups.
