I am curious if we could use a distribution list as a login to team so that we can notify other users not in the distribution list in the teams chat feature.

Currently the only way I can see this happening if the email address is a unique address.

To use Microsoft Teams, you need an Office 365 account with the appropriate Office 365 license plan.


Currently cant associate the DL with MST, you may refer this link:

a distribution list can not be used to sign into Teams. Teams requires an actual user account and a license. DLs are not user accounts and a license cant be assigned to a DL.
