[KB] How do I identify the inactive Office 365 distribution lists in my organization?

As an Exchange admin, you need to know which Office 365 distribution lists are inactive in your organization. A group is deemed inactive if there has been no email activity over a specified period of time. You need to identify inactive distribution groups to:
  • Avoid emails sent to unintended recipients.
  • Prevent hackers from sending malicious emails to a wide range of audience.
  • Clean up your Office 365 environment.

Solution:
Exchange Reporter Plus offers a comprehensive report on inactive Exchange Online distribution lists. It offers details such as display name, email address, manager, validation status, and more.
