want to setup a distribution list or group in office 365

mkramer777 asked
Trying to figure out office 365 groups (email) and distribution lists.  I have an email address setup of:  abc@123.com

I want 4 email addresses to receive an email in their inbox if anyone sends to abc@123.com

What is the best way to set this up in the office 365 admin portal?

If all you care about is email, create a Distribution group. Office 365 Groups are also fine for mail delivery, but they add some overhead (sharepoint site, etc). One nice benefit they offer though is the group mailbox where you can "archive" past messages sent to the group.
