Exchange 2007 DL's and external contacts
Posted on 2011-03-11
Running Exchange 2007 SP2.
I have a DL set up that contains three external contacts as members.
The DL has email address: email@example.com
The contacts are: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org
How does this work exactly? Why does the DL itself need an email address? Surely all it's doing is forwarding the email to the three external recipients? or does the original email go to email@example.com on the Exchange server, which then forwards the message to the component recipients?
And what if I added an internal recipient to this DL, how does the DL email address affect this?
