Reposting this as Leseouf was the only one who answered last time and he achieved the same results.  I am trying to enter an Exchange email group instead of just individual addresses in the FM SendEmail script step (using SMTP).  However, when I do so, I get the following:

"/o=UNITED/ou=first administrative group/cn=Recipients/cn=_Collections"

I have a work around since I have an employee table in FM.  However, it seems someone must have run into this problem and maybe FM has fixed it?

No takers on this one so I guess there is no Exchange/SMTP solution for groups.  Attached is how I created email groups in FM by creating an employee table and then TOs off of that and a List field off of the TOs (the last part thanks for Will's help).

Tried twice, so it seems there is no solution to select groups from Exchange/SMTP in the FM email script step.  Thus, this solution seems best so fasr.
