  • Hi Sam ,

    You would need to create a mail enabled user that has a name like your distribution group . You would then have to give each member of the distribution group permission to send on behalf of the new mail user.

    This command could be used.
    Set-DistributionGroup -Identity "DLName" -GrantSendOnBehalfTo USERNAME

    Also for reference I M giving you some link so read them carefully so you will be able to do it.

    If you enter "set-dis" and hit the "tab" key do you find the cmdlet?
     
    If you run this cmdlet, "get-pssnapin", do you see any
    "Microsoft.Exchange.*" snap-ins? If not then I think you're not using
    the EMS but just powershell.

  • here is the result of the command: Set-Distributiongroup -identity IT -GrantSendOnBehalfTo sami.elkhoury

    The term 'Set-Distributiongroup' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program.
     Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.
    At line:1 char:22
    + Set-Distributiongroup <<<<  -identity IT -GrantSendOnBehalfTo sami.elkhoury
        + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (Set-Distributiongroup:String) [], CommandNotFoundException
        + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException

    something is wrong in here...
