Restrict external contact to Distribution Group RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All, 

    I have so many external contacts in our Exchange 2010 environment.

    Currently those contacts are randomly located on many DL too, I want to prevent the owner DL so he/she cannot modify member for external contacts only, can Exchange do that ?

  • If you want to stop a owner of group from adding existing contacts to a group, then no, that cannot be done. Any mail enabled object can be added to the group membership.

  • Yes, it seems that you cannot do that by Exchange.

    Frankly speaking, it is the owner's responsibility to manage his group.

    Restricting it by your company's policy is more effective.

  • You could hide that external contacts from GAL if you dont use those contacts to send emails directly.

    Hi Frank, nope, already inform the user that Exchange cannot do that.
