Configure a Moderated Recipient

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2011-04-28

When you configure a recipient for moderation, all messages sent to that recipient are subject to approval by the designated moderators. For more information about how Exchange 2010 handles recipient moderation, see Understanding Moderated Transport.

CautionCaution:
If you want to moderate a distribution group or a dynamic distribution group and your organization contains older versions of Exchange, you must specify an Exchange 2010 Hub Transport server as the expansion server. This specification is required because previous versions of Exchange don't support moderated recipients. If a message that is sent to a moderated distribution group or dynamic distribution group is expanded on a Hub Transport server running Exchange Server 2007, it will be delivered to all members of that distribution group, bypassing the moderation process. By specifying an Exchange 2010 Hub Transport server as the expansion server, you will ensure that all messages are moderated.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the"Moderated Transport" entry in the Transport Permissions topic.

Assume you want to accomplish the following scenario:

  • Enable moderation for the All Employees distribution group.

  • Designate Rich Haddock and Kim Ralls as the moderators.

  • Allow the members of the distribution group HR to bypass moderation.

  • Notify internal senders if their message to the distribution group is rejected, but do not send any notifications to senders external to your organization.

To accomplish the tasks in this example scenario, perform the following procedure:

  1. In the EMC console tree, click Recipient Configuration.

  2. In the result pane, click the All Employees distribution group and click Properties.

  3. Select the Mail Flow Settings tab.

  4. Select Message Moderation and then click Properties.

  5. On the Message Moderation dialog, complete the following:

    1. Select the Messages sent to this group have to be approved by a moderator check box.

    2. For the Specify group moderators list, click Add.

    3. In the Select Recipient dialog, select Rich Haddock and Kim Ralls from the list and click OK.

    4. For the Specify senders who don't require message approval list, click Add.

    5. In the Select Recipient dialog, select HR from the list and click OK.

    6. Click the Notify senders in your organization only when their message is not approved option.

  6. Click OK.

  7. Click OK.

This example shows how to configure a distribution group for moderation, but the same steps can be followed to configure any recipient for moderation.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the"Moderated Transport" entry in the Transport Permissions topic.

Assume you want to accomplish the following:

  • Enable moderation for the All Employees distribution group.

  • Designate Rich Haddock and Kim Ralls as the moderators.

  • Allow the members of the distribution group HR to bypass moderation.

  • Notify internal senders if their message to the distribution group is rejected, but do not send any notifications to senders external to your organization.

To accomplish the tasks in this example scenario, run the following command:

Set-DistributionGroup "All Employees" -ModerationEnabled $true -ModeratedBy "rhaddock@contoso.com","kralls@contoso.com" -ByPassModerationFromSendersOrMembers "HR" -SendModerationNotifications Internal

For more information about syntax and parameters, see Set-DistributionGroup.

This example shows how to configure a distribution group for moderation, but the same steps can be followed to configure any recipient for moderation. Simply use the corresponding cmdlet.
