Exchange distribution question

Posted on 2004-11-12

I’m trying to make a distribution group for everyone in my company. We have only 1 domain. I setup the distro group as Global – Distribution. I made the members the group Domain/Users. This doesn’t work. Is that because Domain/Users is a security group?

Is there an easier way than manually entering every user in to the distro group?

Thanks in advance.

    You can't use domain users because its the primary group for all users in the domain by default (see  You're going to need to add the users manually, but you can select multiple users in ADU&C, right click, and add to group.  This should save you some administrative overhead.
