So I need to tell all my dynamic dist lists to ignore hidden mailboxes.  I ran these tests.  Below, #1 did not work, #2 did (for creation).  See #3 below and help me get the correct syntax to change a dynamic distribution list using the parameters that are detailed in #2 below

(1) **DID NOT WORK**
New-DynamicDistributionGroup -Name "tgmtest3" -OrganizationalUnit 'mydomain.com/Americas/Groups/Distribution' -RecipientContainer mydomain.com -RecipientFilter { recipienttype -eq 'usermailbox' -and HiddenfromAddresslistsEnabled -eq $false}

(2) ** This works**
New-DynamicDistributionGroup -Name "tgmtest4" -OrganizationalUnit 'mydomain.com/Americas/Groups/Distribution' -RecipientContainer mydomain.com -RecipientFilter { recipienttype -eq 'usermailbox' -and -not(HiddenfromAddresslistsEnabled -eq $true)}

(3) ** What should this format be? ** - I can toggle like below and it says it is successful, but FALSE is not correct
Set-DynamicDistributionGroup -Identity 'tgmtest3' -HiddenfromAddresslistsEnabled $false
Set-DynamicDistributionGroup -Identity 'tgmtest3' -HiddenfromAddresslistsEnabled $true

Please help me.  I have been on this task all morning and it only should have taken me a minute.

Set-DynamicDistributionGroup -Identity 'tgmtest3' -HiddenfromAddresslistsEnabled $false
Set-DynamicDistributionGroup -Identity 'tgmtest3' -HiddenfromAddresslistsEnabled $true

will only make the distribution group itself hidden or not hidden from the GAL that is not what you are looking for

you should do a

Set-DynamicDistributionGroup -Identity 'tgmtest3' -RecipientFilter { recipienttype -eq 'usermailbox' -and -not(HiddenfromAddresslistsEnabled -eq $true)}
