Set-DynamicDistributionGroup

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Online

Topic Last Modified: 2014-03-12

This cmdlet is available in on-premises Exchange Server 2013 and in the cloud-based service. Some parameters and settings may be exclusive to one environment or the other.

Use the Set-DynamicDistributionGroup cmdlet to modify the settings of an existing dynamic distribution group.

For information about the parameter sets in the Syntax section below, see Syntax.

This example applies the following changes to the existing dynamic distribution group Developers:

  • Change the ConditionalCompany query filter to Contoso.

  • Change the IncludedRecipients query filter to MailboxUsers.

  • Add the value Internal to the ConditionalCustomAttribute1 attribute.

Set-DynamicDistributionGroup -Identity "Developers" -ConditionalCompany "Contoso" -IncludedRecipients MailboxUsers -ConditionalCustomAttribute1 "Internal"

A dynamic distribution group queries Active Directory mail-enabled objects and builds the group membership based on the results. The group membership is recalculated whenever an email message is sent to a group. You can use the Set-DynamicDistributionGroup cmdlet to overwrite existing settings or to add new settings.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although all parameters for this cmdlet are listed in this topic, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To see what permissions you need, see the "Dynamic distribution groups" entry in the Recipients Permissions topic.

ImportantImportant:
Exchange doesn't validate custom addresses for proper formatting. You must ensure that the custom address you specify complies with the format requirements for that address type.

The GrantSendOnBehalfTo parameter specifies a mailbox user who can send on behalf of this dynamic distribution group.

This parameter accepts the following values:

IgnoreDefaultScope

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

This parameter is available only in on-premises Exchange 2013.

The IgnoreDefaultScope parameter instructs the command to ignore the default recipient scope setting for the Exchange Management Shell session and use the entire forest as the scope. This allows the command to access Active Directory objects that aren't currently in the default scope. Using the IgnoreDefaultScope parameter introduces the following restrictions:

  • You can't use the DomainController parameter. The command uses an appropriate global catalog server automatically.

  • You can only use the DN for the Identity parameter. Other forms of identification, such as alias or GUID, aren't accepted.

IncludedRecipients

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Directory.Recipient.WellKnownRecipientType

The IncludedRecipients parameter filters the recipient types used to build the dynamic distribution group. The available values for the IncludedRecipients parameter are:
