What is the difference between creating shared mailbox and a distribution list in Office 365.  I typically used a shared mailbox but was told we needed to make a distributions group.  I am trying to understand what really is the difference?

Is the main difference purely the mailbox itself?  Is the dist group just simply an email address that forwards to everyone in the list?
