I would like to use the Exchange Management Console to export all members of a dynamic distribution list in our Exchange environment to a text file. I would like this file to simply include the recipient name and recipient type. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Nice and easy :)

In the Exchange Management Shell...

Get-DistributionGroupMember "TheGroup" | Select-Object Name, RecipientType | Export-Csv "somefile.csv"

Does this work for a Dynamic Distribution Group? I'm getting an error message that states that my DDG, AllFacStaff, can not be found on our domain controller. It is definitely there...but when I do a "Get-DistributionGroup" cmd it only pulls up static distribution groups, not dynamic. Thanks for your help!

Ha...thanks for the help but there is a "Preview" button in the EMC under the filter tab that allows you to view all members!

What happens when you try to export to the desktop and you get "access denied"?
