Exchange 2013 - Delivery Management (Security groups)

    Question

  • Exchange 2013 - Delivery Management (Security groups)

    The distribution group (e.g. Staff ALL), I would like to add a security group in "Delivery Management" so it allows only certain users to send to that distribution group.   What happens is that when you try to add a security group for "Delivery Management" it only show the users and not the security groups.  Is there a command so I can add the security group through the exchange management shell?

  • Hello,

    By default, we can't add a security group for "Delivery Management". We need to mail-enable it.

    If the group is a universal security group, you can use Enable-DistributionGroup cmdlet to mail-enable an existing universal group.

    If the group is not a universal security group, you need to convert it to universal security group, and then use Enable-DistributionGroup cmdlet to mail-enable it.

    Here is the article for your reference.

  • I don't want to mail-enable another security group.  I just want to add a normal security group to the delivery management section of the distribution group as I don't want more distribution groups if I mail enable the security group

  • Hello,

    I'm afraid that you can use only the way to do it.

  • After you've set everything up, you can hide it from the address book.
