Exchange Online/EOP Transport Rules & Distribution Groups
In Exchange Online & Exchange Online Protection, Creating transport rule where the action is applied for Distribution Group is not possible, as this is limitation with Office365, You may recieve below error:
"The transport rule can't be created because Group@domain.com, the recipient to be added by a rule action, is a distribution group. Transport rules can't add distribution groups to messages. To resolve this error, remove this recipient and specify a different one"
Currently this is by design, to workaround this create Shared Mailbox & Enable forwarding to Distribution Group. Post which you can apply Shared Mailbox to replace Distribution Groups.
