  • If the group is of group scope "Universal" you can mailenable it in EMS using the cmdlet Enable-Distributiongroup or use "New Distribution Group" in EMC and choose the option for an existing group.
    ..but it the group is of scope "Global" or "Local", you need to change that to Universal first.

    Only Universal Groups that isn't already mailenabled (security or distribution doesn't matter) will show up when browsing for a group to mailenable in EMC.

    See if you can find it in EMS with Get-Group.

  • See if you can enable it in EMS with:
    Get-Group "GroupName" | Enable-Distributiongroup

    If the group is already mailenabled, the output you get will tell you.

  • If you look in EMC under recipient management --> Distribution Group and you see your group in there, it has been mail enabled.  Also through ADUC, you can validate that it has an e-mail address associated automatically.

  • OK Good,
    If it had already been mailenabled (a common reason why a group doesn't show up when browsing for it in EMC) you would have got that information, but you didn't.

    Don't know why you couldn't see it in EMC.
