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
. The possible enumeration values are "CreateChild, DeleteChild, ListChildren, Self, ReadProperty, WriteProperty, Delet
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.
