Exchange 2007 Distribution Groups with Linked Mailboxes RRS feed

  • Question


  • Hi

    How do I create distributions groups with Linked
    Mailboxes?

    I tried with command, Add-ADPermission -Identity "Group" -User
    domain\user -AccessRights WriteProperty -Properties "Member"
    I get no error but the user is not added.

    I also tried from ADSI-edit...
    But get errors on group types, only Domain local I can use but the user is
    added as a SID and no email is sent.

    Ideas would be much appreciated!

  • Hi Robert,

    If you want to add linked mailbox to your distribution group, you can use this command;

    Add-distributionGroupMember -identity "Group" -member "your linked mailbox"

    It can add the linked mailbox as a member of the distribution group, but cannot add the linked master account.

    Thanks,

    Does "Add-DistributionGroupMember" not work?

  • Hi, Thanks for the reply.

    I use "Add-DistributionGroupMember -identity "Group" -member TRUSTEDDOMAIN\User"

    But I get Object "TRUSTEDDOMAIN\User" could not be found

    Am I missing something maybe?

  • Thank you Evan! 

    That was it... I was triying with the master account!

    It works now!

    Also thanks to Rich for pointing me right in the first place!

    Is "TRUSTEDDOMAIN" the "resource" domain where the user with the
    mailbox is located? It looks like you're trying to use the "account"
    domain. Try using the "TRUSTING" domain.
