I'm not sure how this happened. I was walking a user through how to make a personal group and later on in the day she received this: and it's going to everyone. I'm not sure how this happened.

It looks like you/she created a new Office 365 group instead of a contact group. Clicking the wrong button is easy to do - but it should be obvious its not the right kind of group, although if you aren't familiar with Outlook, you wouldn't know that.

The first one is the Office group dialog, the second is the (personal) Contact Group.
