  • I suppose your are having Exchange 2010 ?

    Are you creating the distributionlist in your Active Directory or in your Exchange console ?

    If using exchange 2010 you'll have to create the distributionlist through the exchange console to mail-enable it.

    You can create the distributionlist in AD but afterwards you'll have to mail-enable it on the exchange server

  • Hi,

    Thanks for the reply.

    Am using Active Directory to create the DL and its Exchange 2010. Is there anyway we can enable that option while creating DL from AD itself and not going to exchange console for enabling email ?
