Hi,

I have an external consultant who has a user in our AD because he need access to some specifik folders.
Now he needs to be on one of our dist-groups. The problem is that this dist-group also is a sec-group, for some folders he are not allowed access to.

My plan was put his private mail (as a contact) into the dist/sec-group, should that give any securityissues?

Any other good Ideas?

No but i am a bit concerned if this group is a security group and has access to important folders - why does this consultant want to be part of it. You could make things clear at this level, however having contacts created a good option.

Else, if things are a bit not in your favour create a contact with his email address and add that to the SG and not his user account.

Mean while i am testing something will give you the result in a while

Ok here is what i was doing - there was an option of forward to - in delivery options of exchange general tab of users properties - when you add a userB account - this changes attribute altRecipient in AD and adds DN of that particular userB to attributes of userA also another change is done to deliveryMechanism changes to True.

I did the same change using ADSIEDIT - however using message tracking i found out Exchange was smart - it threw an NDR, so bad luck.

Stick to the contacts plan.
