Exchange 2010: Receiving Distribution List Email as a Distribution List Member/Sender RRS feed

  • Question

  • In Exchange 2010, is there a way to prevent receiving email sent to a distribution list when you are both the message sender and a member of the distribution list being emailed?  We have a user wondering if there's a way he could not receive email he sends to a distribution list that he's a member of.  Thanks.

  • hi,

    If you want to achieve only for one user,i have test that you can use transport rule to achieve.

    The rule you should create like this:

    In conditions page,you should check on from people/sent to people/sent to a member of distribution list

    In action page,you check on delete the message without notifyting anyone

    Finish the rule.

    --------------------------------------------------------

    For example,you have a distribution group named Group,five users in the group,A/B/C/D/E

    If you want user A achieve the goal.You can set the rule as this.

    from user A/sent to user A/sent to a member of Group

    Do like this ,when A send mail to the group,he will not receive the mail which is sent by himself,other members in the group will receive the mail.

    Notice:the rule only can work for one user .You can't add another user in the rule or create another rule.

    ----------------------------------------------------------

    Hope can help you

    thanks,

  • Unfortunantely not that I've ever seen, thats not possible. If he is on the list and sends to the list, he's going to get the email.
