I have a group in active directory (All Staff) that I only want a specific group of users being able to send email to. I have gone in and removed the Authenticated Users completely and I still get the listing to appear for all users. I don't want this to appear as an option for staff members not in the group that I have allowed it for.

You cannot remove it from the address list for specificusers.

You can under mailflow settings setup the group to reject mail from this you haven't given permissions to.

Do you want to restrict everyone to send mail to Group (apart from few users)?

- This I think you can set a option to accept  mails from only users are suppose to send mail to group on the group properties, mail delivery settings..

Or you want the group to hide from the GAL.
- If you want to hide group from GAL, then enable option Hide this object from GAL.

If you hide from the GAL then nobody will be able to email it.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Detail was minimal. No instructions on specifics to perform the task just a general answer.

What do you mean no specifics given? I even gave you where to find the setting.  Quote from original post "You can under mailflow settings setup the group to reject mail from this you haven't given permissions to."
