We use Exchange 2010.

I need to send mail to several individual groups, like sales@company.com.  I need to be able to add and remove users from that group.

I am not an Exchange administrator.

Exchange is up and working properly.  I can navigate around it fine; I just need the quick lesson on creating these groups.

For instance, Jay@company.com and Sandy@company.com need to both receive mail addressed to sales@company.com.   They both already have email addresses.

Thank you.

Simply open the Exchange Management Console.  Then

1. Expand Microsoft Exchange on Premises
2. Expand Recipient Configuration
3. Right Click Distribution Group and Select Create Distribution Group.
4. Select New Group and Click Next
5. Give the Group a Name and Alias.  I would just use Sales for Both Then click Next
6. Then Click new.
7. Double click on your newly created Group and select Members, then select Add and search for the names of the people you want in it.
8. Click Apply and Ok.
9.  If external people (people not using your Exchange Server) are going to be emailing this group you will need to go into the Group settings again and Select Mail Flow Settings Tab.
10. Then double Click on Message Delivery Restrictions, and decheck the box that says "Require that all senders are authenticated"

This worked.  I was able to send the group an email from a Google account and it was received.

A note to those monitoring this.  If you get an error that the email account or alias is already being used, remove the alias from the users account.  They will most likely be a member of the group you're creating anyway, just remember to add them to the group.
