Prevent internal users from sending to everybody

I would like to prevent some of the junior users from sending to everybody@mydomain.com. Is it at all possible?

Reasoning is that, typically someone will think its a good idea to send something to "everybody" when in fact they are actually spamming due to ignorance.

Even if it is possible, which I doubt,  to remove the everybody group, I do not want to do that because then it prevents legit mails from management or HR.

So the question is. Is it at all possible to remove a user or group of users from SENDING to everybody on the domain?

You can restrict sending to a distribution group, simply right-click on the group, choose Properties and on one of the Exchange-tabs you can configure the restrictions.

You aren't going to be able to stop them from either creating a personal distribution list with everyone in the GAL in it, or from picking everyone from the GAL and adding them to the 'To:' field though

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

abhaigh: Thats true but then instead of it being a matter of ignorance it will be purposeful abuse, which I will nail them to the wall for.
