You will need to disable this security feature in order for emails to be forwarded to Re:amaze. See how to disable this security feature here.

Office 365 Group Distribution List

Used when you want to send email to group of people without having to type each individual recipient's name, distribution lists are organized by a particular discussion subject (such as “Marketing”) or by users who share common work that requires them to communicate frequently. They also provide a way for you to automatically forward email to multiple email addresses.

Distribution lists are sometimes called distribution groups.
