Deliver distribution group emails to Inbox

How can I change the default Outlook 2016/Office 365 setting so that any emails sent to the All Employees email distribution group will arrive in the user's Inbox (and not just in the distribution group named "All_employees" below the Groups folder within Outlook 2016? (see the screenshot).

We don't mind if emails sent to this group arrive within this designated folder under the "Groups" folder but need to make sure that these emails sent to these distribution groups also arrive within the individual user's Inboxes.

Is there a setting within Office 365 to set this up?

That's not a distribution group, but the new "modern" Office 365 groups. In order for users to receive messages sent to this group in their Inbox, they need to be "subscribers". Each user can subscribe manually via Outlook or OWA. Or, you as the admin can do it on their behalf via PowerShell:

Add-UnifiedGroupLinks -Identity groupname  -LinkType Subscriber -Links user@domain.com

Open in new window


And, you can configure the Group so that new members are automatically subscribed:

Set-UnifiedGroup groupname -AutoSubscribeNewMembers

Open in new window

What is the Power Shell command so that all current users are subscribed? I don't want to have to manually subscribe each and every user.

I need to be sure that all emails sent to these "New" Office 365 groups arrive in the user's Inboxes. If they also arrive within the other group this is fine as well.

No such cmdlet, best you can do is get the current list of members and run it against each of them.
