You can't enable or configure moderation for certain kinds of distribution groups in Office 365 dedicated/ITAR

Symptoms

You can't enable or configure moderation for certain kinds of distribution groups in Microsoft Office 365 dedicated/ITAR.

Cause

This issue occurs because distribution group moderation is currently supported only for a subset of group types in Office 365 dedicated/ITAR. Specifically, moderation may be enabled only for dynamic distribution groups.

Resolution

To enable moderation for a dynamic distribution group, run the following Exchange Management Shell cmdlet:

Set-DynamicDistributionGroup <DDG Identity> -ModerationEnabled $TRUE –ModeratedBy <Moderator Identity> 
If you want to enable moderation for other kinds of groups, you should submit a design change request (DCR) through your service delivery manager (SDM) for possible inclusion in a future service pack.

More Information

For more information about how to configure dynamic distribution groups, see Set-DynamicDistributionGroup.
