Exchange 2007 DDL’s and EMC


If you read through my blog, you will find I have had great fun creating DDL’s via PowerShell before.

Well, the fun continues.

If you create a DDL via the PowerShell, it automatically sets the RecipientFilter to DOMAIN/USERS. However, when you preview it in EMC it finds all users across your entire domain;


Whether this is a “bug” or Exchange EMC not being “clear” about what its previewing I don’t know.

However, its simple enough to fix.

If you don’t mind doing so, you can re-create the DDL via PS, appending the

-RecipientContainer [OU]

to the command. [OU] can be any valid OU (even the full domain).

If you don’t want to recreate, dig out ADSI edit and find the msExchDynamicDLBaseDN string as required.

Refresh your DD’s, and check the “Filter” tab again. It should now display the correct container, and the correct users will get email 🙂
