Mail disable them

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/exchange/disable-distributiongroup?view=exchange-ps

Use the Disable-DistributionGroup cmdlet to remove email capabilities from existing mail-enabled security groups and distribution groups.


The security group will still be in AD after that.

Hi @TheExchanger-5602 ,

As Andy said, you can disable these distribution group with this cmdlet:

 Disable-DistributionGroup -Identity "SG01"

A guidance that maybe helpful: Mail-enable or mail-disable existing security groups

Best regards,
Zhengqi Lou
