for full access it is

get-distributiongroup ir | add-adpermission -user john -accessrights FullAccess

but you said

" send email out as the distribution list email address."


for that you will need send-as and not full access

I'm told that if i do "send as" recipient will get message as "send on behalf of" therefore i need full access.

Getting this when trying to grant full access.

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>get-distributiongroup xxxxxxx | add-adpermission -user xxxxxx -accessrights fullaccess
Cannot process argument transformation on parameter 'AccessRights'. Cannot convert value "fullaccess" to type "System.D
irectoryServices.ActiveDirectoryRights[]". Error: "Cannot convert value "fullaccess" to type "System.DirectoryServices.
ActiveDirectoryRights" due to invalid enumeration values. Specify one of the following enumeration values and try again

eTree, ListObject, ExtendedRight, Delete, ReadControl, GenericExecute, GenericWrite, GenericRead, WriteDacl, WriteOwner

The Send-As rights are SEND-AS rights, not send-on-behalf.
So when this is used, the recipient does not see the true senders details.

Test it and see for yourself.
