Office365 and Groups

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?

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.
