Group permission to "send-as" a Distribution list (works for one group member but not others) - Exchange 2003
Posted on 2008-10-30
Server: Windows 2003 Small Business Server (service Packed)
Application: Exchange 2003 (latest SP)
After looking through the numerous questions related to this topic on EE and other websites I'm 99%+ sure that I've got the settings correct.
There is a distribution list that a group of users need to "send as" email from.
Instead of adding the individuals to the "send as" permissions I created a group and granted the group the rights to do the send as.
My problem is that only one member of the send-as group can actually do it (as well as the user 'administrator').
I've even given the send-as-group "full" permissions in the security tab.
The error message that is returned (immediately) to the non-working users is that they 'do not have permision to send to this person'
- created a chart showing each user and all groups that they belong to
- the one user that it does work for is in a group (sharepoint admins) that no other user is in, and all users are in a group with at least one other user.
- the sharepoint admins group is not listed in the security tab of the distribution list and is not a member of any group that is listed.
- rebooted the server
- waited days for the permissions within exchange to propogate even though it only needs a couple of hours
I have set up the ability of AA/secretaries/assistants/etc to be able to send email as their boss on numerous occasions, but this is the first time I'm doing this for a security group to have permissions to 'send-as' a distribution list.
...ultimately what has me stumped is why it works for one user but not the other members of the same group....
Your help and insight is greatly appreciated.
