Importing user profiles from Exchange server 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Recently our org moved from exchange 2003 to exchange 2010. after the move we suddenly have all the distribution list not available in user profiles. groups like #HR_ALL and #RESEARCH_ALL are not found in our user profile store anymore after latest crawl

    At this point I am confused if I as SharePoint Admin needs to change something in profile import connection or is it something by default in Exchange 2010 security model that blocks distribution lists from crawling. No changes are made to default content access account since early 2008 when we implemented MOSS 2007.

    btw, just an FYI, even when i tried to use "#HR_ALL" in my outlook it gave me "You do not have permission to sent to this account" message .Though i am not not sure if this was always the expected behavior or due to recent changes.

  • Hi Adil Baig,

    i checked with our exchange team, seems there are differences in exchange 2003 to 2010, for example, 

    starting exchange 2007, the distribution list, need to be set to universal group, if you put as non-universal group then there should be no email enabled.

    or if you upgrade from the previous version of exchange then the non-universal group may be added.

    more detail for this :

    if from the exchange part is done, then you may continue to the sharepoint 2007, SSP settings to import them again, http://wss-moss.blogspot.in/2008/07/blog-post.html

    as i know, sharepoint may not take the distribution list as save enough because there is no security enabled, usually it take grouptype: security.
