I have Company A and Company B, both located in different cities, in different provinces. I have created dynamic distribution groups for each one called AllStaff and filter based on company name. Now I have 1 user who needs to be on both of those lists. I want to somehow edit the dynamic distribution group to include perhaps an OR boolean, as in "all users from company A" or "mr user".

Hi,
A simplest option would be create a contact in other side and point to that user's email address, so that the contact does get automatically added and at the same time user gets all mails
Hope this helps
Thanks

when I create a new contact, I only have the option of using an external SMTP address.......so if I try to use "mr user" I just get an error stating it's already being used. These are both internal companies that we manage.

Hi,
In that case you can create a dummy mailbox and set forwarding to the user. Make sure that mailbox does not store mails, it just forwards, so it will never occupy mails ever.
Thanks

ya but this isn't a 1 off thing. I have several companies to handle, and multiple users who needs to co-exist between 2 or more of them so I don't really want to start create a whole bunch of dummy mailboxes. I'm just trying to get more creative with the filtering, which I know you can using the shell however my knowledge using the shell isn't that significant. Thanks for the suggestions though.

Hi,
Here I come again....See for the User set any of the Custom Attribute that you do not use at all for any of the other Mailboxes. Now in the RecipientFilter parameter use -or and use that attribute.
This link should guide you :: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124268(EXCHG.80).aspx
Else let me know exact group attiorbutes and I can give oyu the command
Thanks
