Distribution List Recipient Type

I exported a list of all distribution groups and members from our Office 365 tenant to a csv file.   The "recipienttypes" are shown in the attached document.  I'm trying to figure out what the recipenttype "user" means.  I googled it but couldn't make any sense out of anything I saw related to the subject.  Thanks in advance for your help!Recipient-Types.docx

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It's a user, but not a valid Exchange recipient. Think Office 365 user without an Exchange Online license. You can get a list of such objects via:

get-user -RecipientTypeDetails User

Open in new window

or via the MSOnline module:

Get-MsolUser | ? {$_.ProxyAddresses.Count -eq 0 -and $_.UserType -eq "member"}

Open in new window

Thank you Vasil!  What you said helped me figure out that user type has groups syncing to the O365 portal from the onprem AD.  I never considered that before now.
