  • Question

  • I am running a test server with Exchange 2010 SP2.  How do I separate my distribution lists and users in the GAL?  I would like two separate lists.

    How would you separate out multiple companies if you chose to do so at a user and distribution list level?


    Thank You, Scott

  • You may proceed in this way:

    New-AddressList -Name "AddresslistName" -RecipientFilter { ((RecipientType -eq 'UserMailbox') -or (RecipientType -eq 'MailContact') -or (RecipientType -eq 'Contact')) -and (Description -eq 'Text in Discription field') } I have heilighted a portion here. If there is a common property for the DLs like this, you may substitute here and can create the separate list

  • You may creates the address list MyAddressList by using the RecipientFilter parameter

    This example creates the address list MyAddressList by using the RecipientFilter parameter and includes recipients that are mailbox users and have StateOrProvince set to Washington or Oregon:

    New-AddressList -Name MyAddressList -RecipientFilter {((RecipientType -eq 'UserMailbox') -and ((StateOrProvince -eq 'Washington') -or (StateOrProvince -eq 'Oregon')))}

  • Does this cover address distribution lists?

    Can this be done with GUI or am I stuck with command prompt?

  • I'm only looking to split the distribution groups up from the names.  How is that done?

  • This does not look like what I want to do...  I think I am just going to leave it as people are use too...
