Distribution Lists

I am running Windows 2003 with exchange 2003 installed on it. All the client machines are XP Pro with Outlook 2003 installed.

My question is, When a user sends an email to a Distribution List, how can you prevent the Distribution List from E-mailing the sender?

So lets say I have a distribution list called TESTLIST. I am a member plus 10 other people are members. When I send a message to the TESTLIST I do not want to receive that message back.

sorry, but that is the way exchange is designed.
you might be able to play around with outlook rules and get it so you don't get the email, but i'm not 100% sure.  At the exchange level, since you are a member of the group, you are going to get the email though (as you should since you are in the group).

If you don't want to receive an email when sending to TESTLIST then remove yourself from that DL.

(otherwise I agree with Mike)

alright, Thats what I figured to. I was just hoping that someone else had a trick for this problem. I just made him use a seperate Distribution List for email this group.
