Distribution groups are a great way of communicating with a group of people on a regular basis.

These instructions assume you’re using the web-based Office 365 emails. If you’re using the desktop Outlook application, or any other method for viewing your emails, these instructions won’t apply to you but distribution groups created on the web will be available to you in your email application.

Open Office 365 by heading to http://office365.whsc.vic.edu.au. Once in there, open the People app.
