hi- thanks for the response. I want to make sure i follow.

distrbition list = ir@abc.com (alias "ir")
user that want access = john@abc.com (alias "john")

If i have the above. I should be typing this in the command field?

get-distributiongroup ir | add-adpermission -user john -accessrights extenderight -extendedrights "full"

I want to grant the user full access.

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

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.
