Mail-Enabling Group Objects


Topic Last Modified: 2005-04-20

Mail-enabled groups can be of two types: distribution groups and security groups. The difference between the two groups is that security groups may be used to assign permissions against a resource in the forest. To mail-enable a group object, the Exchange Administrator must have the Exchange delegated role, Exchange View-Only Administrator (or higher), on the target administrative group. In addition, the Exchange Administrator must have Read and Write access to the following group object attributes:

  • adminDisplayName

  • autoReplyMessage

  • displayName (Display Name)

  • dLMemDefault

  • homeMTA

  • internetEncoding

  • legacyExchangeDN

  • mail

  • mailNickname (Alias)

  • mAPIRecipient

  • msExchADCGlobalNames

  • msExchFBURL

  • msExchHideFromAddressLists

  • msExchMailboxSecurityDescriptor

  • msExchPoliciesExcluded

  • msExchPoliciesIncluded

  • proxyAddresses (Proxy Addresses)

  • reportToOriginator

  • showInAddressBook

  • targetAddress

  • textEncodedORAddress
