Dynamic Distribution groups -recipientfilter switch RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does anyone know if the -recipientfilter option in creating a dynamic distribution group will accept any AD object attribute that is visible when using adsiedit to view the ldap properties of a user object.

    aka if we have some custom atrributes in each object, use the -recipientfilter option to build the group from this

    No, it won't. Only the properties that OPATH recognizes are usable.

  • Are they the same for 2010?  So safe to assume i can't create a dynamic dist group based on if a user is a member of a current ACL group (one that isnt a universal group) or based on a attribute of there Ad object..

    That depends on the property you're expecting to use. If it's in the
    list then you can use it.
