Using Exchange groups as a mailing list

Posted on 2009-05-18

Currently I use Exchange 2003 and the built in distribution lists to communciate with our external clients regarding outages and other service issues. My only issue with this method is that when a client 'replies to all' eveyone in the distribution list gets the response. As some of the emails are confidential is there a way around this so that a response from one of the distribution list recipients doesn't email everyone if they respond to an email sent out by us?

Any info appreciated.

Would say that for such mails you can create a Simple Mail account and not a DL, because as you know that a mail sent to a DL would be forwarded to all, thats how it is designed to work.

Use BCC to the distribution list to send your mail. Reply to all will only send the mail to the sender.

Or better still use an email list application. Exchange is very poor at doing this type of thing.
