Exchange 2007 - Dynamic Distribution List

Posted on 2009-07-15

Dear Exchange 2007 Experts,

I am trying to create a custom dynamic distribution list in Exchange 2007. Unfortunately for me, the "New Dynamic Distribution Group" wizard does not have the fields from AD that I would like to use such as "Company" or "Office" as criteria.

Is there a way to use more of the AD fields that I already have data entered instead of using the custom attributes?

Company, Department, and State or Province are the available AD fields within the GUI and explicat cmdlet syntax:

A dynamic distribution group queries Active Directory directory service mail-enabled objects and builds the group membership based on the results. The group membership is recalculated whenever an e-mail message is sent to the group. The query filters provided with Exchange are limited to any combination of the following parameters:

ConditionalCompany
ConditionalCustomAttribute N (where N is a value from 1 through 15)
ConditionalDepartment
ConditionalStateOrProvince
IncludedRecipients

You can create custom recipient filters that slightly expand the number of available fields, but these would be only used with the cmdlet.  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb738157.aspx
