Using ADModify to change delivery restrictions in Microsoft Exchange

I am using ADModify to bulk change mailbox delivery restrictions across one of the information stores.  I have created a security group containing the members of the individuals allowed to send to these mailboxes.

On a test account, the security group was applied using the GUI and tested successfully

Now to bulk modify
In ADModify, I have applied the LDAP fillter associated with the specific information store and selected all (240 accounts). Custom tab - authOrig and applied the distinguished name of the secutiy group.

The problem is that although the changes are  100% successful, no one can send mail to these accounts. Not even members of the applied security group. The group was removed using the null value and everything is back to the default value and working properly. I have also attempted to do this on a reduced number of accounts (20) and had the same results

Hey,

authOrig can only contain Users (or really mailboxes). If you're adding a group you must add it to dLSubmitPerms.

It makes for a very odd split.

I've included snapshots of the results. Using dLSubmitPerms returns 0% success. In review of the variable, I don't see it when I look in Adsiedit.msc. Am I doing something wrong ? Still need to use the custom field correct ?

Sorry, my fault. Try dLMemSubmitPerms.
