Admins need more control over channel email options
Currently admins can turn channel emails on/off at the tenant level, but have no visibility or control over what channels have their emails set to. I suggest admins should have a tenant-level policy that allows them to set a default channel email setting, as well as giving admins the option to prevent users from changing their channel to a different setting, requiring an admin to do it for them.

It's almost 2021 and we're still looking for this. We also want to be able to enable Email at the tenant level and restrict it to Only team members.

I agree with one caveat - a self-service option to provision an auto-generated email address that utilizes the custom domain name. With this in place, organizations can force all of the incoming email through 3rd party spam protection
I am a bid confused about this topic.
a) on a O365 group level we can enable or disable Email reception outside of the tenant. So sending email to O365 group is set to "NO" but I can still receive Emails on the channel level??
b) Pauls screenshot to have channel level email settings from 2017 are not visible in my current Teams tenant. Did this feature disappear and what would be the future road map for it.
c) If the owner of the team revoke members all rights in regard to channels -- like delete or create - some channels in the team a member can get an email address to copy and other channels report -- please ask your admin for more privileges. but all of this without logic -- is this a bug?
We recently had a user delete an entire channel by mistake. We lost TONS of critical documentation from a strategic workshop session with MS and hours of stakeholders time invested. We were barely able to recover the channel via MS engineers 22 days later. For organizations that are less tech savvy or want more control as users begin adoption, admins should have tenant level permissions and then team owners can decide how savvy their users are and open up permission levels as appropriate. We are excited about teams but folks will be scared away if they can easily delete a channel as a member of a group.
