Wordpress Contact can't send to Exchange Distribution List (individual users are fine)
Posted on 2010-09-01
I have a Contact form in Wordpress that i am trying to use to email a distribution list that resides on an Exchange 2007 server. The message does not go through properly, I do not get an NDR and the recipients (members of the Dist List) do not receive the message.
I can email the distribution list successfully from my personal email accounts as well as internal (Exchange) accounts.
I can email individuals using the Wordpress form directly (i.e. members of the distribution list).
Is there some setting i am overlooking? Perhaps a setting in Exchange 2007 or Active Directory? As a workaround, Wordpress is now set to email all of the members of the Distribution list individually.
The distribution list on the Exchange 2007 server is Universal in Scope and NOT a Query-based Distribution Group.
