List all Inactive Distribution Groups in Office 365

Jul 8, 2014 by Emma Robinson

We have once again added a new report to our Office 365 reporting software and it is immediately available to all existing customers.

The new Exchange Online report shows you all mail enabled distribution groups which have not sent or received any email over a particular period of time.

Inactive Distribution Groups Report

Inactive Distribution Groups Report

If your mail enabled distribution groups are not receiving any email then it is likely that they do not require an email address and can be modified to not accept messages. This can help reduce the footprint for spammers and attackers to exploit.

The Inactive Distribution Groups report is another example of where we have listened to and acted upon the feedback of our customers.

This report is located under our Mail Traffic reports section along with all our other Mail Traffic reports and can be scheduled, exported and modified much like all our other reports.
