How would one restrict access to the "Everyone" group on the server ? Ideal conditions would be no access for all users, except for a specific group.

Hi

You can do that by using "Access Server" field on server document. Enter the group name who will have access to this server and by default rest will not have access to this server.


Good Luck

I mean the "EveryOne" group. (E.g: When sending mail out to "EveryOne" every server user gets a copy. Not restricting access to the entire server.

I'm just trying to understand what you are trying to do... are you trying to stop notes users (who can edit person groups on your server) from adding PERSONS to a PERSON GROUP called "EVERYONE" yet still allow them to add PERSONS to other groups?

No. Here's the situation :

There is a group called "EveryOne" (I believe it's created at server install) that contains ALL recipients of the public address book.

We're having problems with this group being "open" (whereas everyone can post to "EveryOne"). We need to restrict who can SEND to this address (group). We want only users part of group "Administrative Assistant" to be able to send a message to "EveryOne"

Sorry for the confusion.

Hi

I am sorry I misunderstood your question.

In the Everyone Group add persons who will be adminstering the mail sent to Everyone group and that persons after scrutinizing the note should forward the mail to the Original Everyone group (which should be maintained by the scrutinizing commity in their Personal Address Book).


Good Luck

For pete's sake, just slap a Readers field on the group form and be done with it.

cedricgirouard,

You could rename the Group to "AllEmployees" then make the new Group so that only the Group "Administrative Assistant" can see it. Which would make it so that only the Group "Administrative Assistant" would know of it's existence.
To do this, rename the Group, then highlight it and press Alt + Enter to display the properties of the document.  Click in the tab that shows the "Key" icon (far right) and un-check "All reader and above", then select (or add) the Group "Administrative Assistant" and the Servers (and LocalDomainServers) to the field below this.  Now only these Group(s) will be able to see it (knows that it exists).

Out of sight out of mind.
