Hi folks,  Is there any way to create dynamic distribution groups based on how many recipients are in the groups?  I'd like to keep creating groups with 100 users in them until all my users have been added.  This will be a nightly update once we get it figured out.  We are on server 2003 in an AD environment with all updates with about 5000 users.  Thanks!

You cannot use dynamic distribution groups in Exchange 2003. This is a function of Exchange 2007.

However, you could create multiple distribution or security groups, add 100 users to those, then encompass all of those under one major distribution group.


That way, technically, when you add a user to one of those security / dg groups it's "dynamic" in the sense that the user will receive mail sent to that distribution group based on inheritance
