Hi,

We have a Distribution Group in our Exchange called everybody. This address should be only accessable internally. I do not want anyone with an external address to be able to email it.

Current settings show that it is:
Group Scope:
Domain Local

Group Type:
Distributon.

I reciently tried and I am able to email this account from my external webmail account. I need to prevent this, Can you help or offer suggestions?

Open the properties of the distribution group, go to the message delivery options and select to recieve mail only from authenticated users.

emanteuf is correct. You can limit who can send emails to the account there and limit it to your domain users, or whatever you want to restrict it to.
