How to test global distribution list RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are required by the business to verify that an internal distribution list containing aprox 2000 users actually fully functions and results with each user receiving an email.  This is for the CEO to send emails to all users.  The difficulty is that the business does not want us to send lots of 'test' messages to the entire company.  Is there any way of verifying the functionality without actually sending out real messages?  The system is Exchange 2007

  • Don't worry, they're just going to try it with a real email.  Fingers crossed it works.

  • Hello,

    You can do it by outlook rule or transport rule.

    You can create this outlook rule: “from people or public group”, “and with Test in the subject”, “move it to the specified folder”. You can move it to the deleted items or Junk folder.

    For transport rule, you can do this: “from users that are inside the organization”, “and send to users that are inside the organization”, “and when the subject field contains test”, “delete the message without notifying anyone” or “send rejection message to sender with enhanced status code”.

    Best Regards,
