Remove-DistributionGroupMember

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2007 SP3, Exchange Server 2007 SP2, Exchange Server 2007 SP1

Topic Last Modified: 2007-06-28

Use the Remove-DistributionGroupMember cmdlet to remove an existing recipient from a distribution group.


Remove-DistributionGroupMember -Identity <DistributionGroupIdParameter> -Member <GeneralRecipientIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

You can use the Remove-DistributionGroupMember cmdlet to remove an existing recipient from a distribution group or a mail-enabled security group. You can't use the Remove-DistributionGroupMember cmdlet to remove a recipient from a dynamic distribution group. A dynamic distribution group queries Microsoft Active Directory mail-enabled objects and builds the group's membership based on the results. The group's membership is recalculated whenever an e-mail message is sent to group.

To run the Remove-DistributionGroupMember cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange Recipient Administrator role
  • Account Operator role for the applicable Active Directory containers

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations.
