When exchange 2003 user sends email to query based distribution group, exchange 2010 users do not receive email.

    Question

  • When an exchange 2003 user sends email to dynamic query based distribution group, exchange 2010 users do not receive email. All 2003 users receive the mail fine. Why is this?

  • Well, something must be wrong with the filter otherwise the message would have been delivered to all users.

    In order to try and solve the problem, you can:

    1. Upgrade the Group to Exchange 2010 format
    2. Configure the group with an Expansion Server (EX2010)

  • It seems that it is not possible to upgrade a query distr group to 2010.

    Set-DistributionGroup "queryDistrGroupName" -ForceUpgrade

    fails and returns error object could not be found.

    I did not try changing the expansion server for the group however.

    I migrated the exchange 2003 user to an exchange 2010 mailbox. the user then tried to send the email again to the query distr group and everyone received the email. Hope this helps someone. Expansion server may have been the thing to try so thanks for mentioning that martina.

    Of course that failed. You are dealing with a Dynamic Distribution Group
    To "upgrade" them you would need to configure them with a RecipientFilter (opath) and the cmdlet and the cmdlet for dyn groups is Set-DynamicDistributionGroup.

  • I would think that the filter you have configured for the Query-based Distribution Groups will give you an answer to that question.

  • the filter is correctly set. when an exchange 2010 user sends email to the group everyone receives the email. when an exchange 2003 user sends the email to the group, only 2003 users receive the email
