After the distribution group is created, you can add recipients to and remove recipients from the distribution group. For more information, see the following topics:

By default, all new distribution groups require that all senders be authenticated. This prevents external senders from sending messages to distribution groups. This default setting is different from previous versions of Exchange where, by default, new distribution groups accepted messages from all senders. To configure a distribution group to accept messages from all senders in Exchange 2007, you must modify the message delivery restriction settings for that distribution group. For more information about configuring message delivery restrictions, see How to Configure Message Delivery Restrictions.
