  • Hi AS,

    If you have many distributiongroup need to mail enable, you can follow this way to do that:

    Create one csv file (included all the needed groups) like this:

    Identity

    group1

    group2

     ....

    Import-csv -path c:\groups.csv | foreach { Enable-distributiongroup -identity $_.Identity}

    Thanks,

  • You can use ADMT and migrate the Exchange properties.  But you still may have to do some reconfiguring afterward.

  • Yes, you can use ADMT to migrate the distribution group, after migrate, you can use enable-distributiongroup to mail enable them.

    To move contacts or distribution groups from one forest to another, you must use a tool such as the Active Directory Migration Tool version 3.0 (ADMT v3). For more information about the ADMT v3, see Active Directory Migration Tool v3.0.
