Hello,

we are looking at an Exchange 2010 implementation (from MDaemon), and they would like to use Public Folders for external Contacts that are shared within departments only.  I am looking at using Dynamic DLs for departments, and have read if you grant access to a Public Folder for the dynamic DL the DL will be converted to a Security Group.  My question is, does that Group still function as a Dynamic DL once that happens?  The documentation I have read isn't clear on it.  If it doesn't, can anyone suggest a better way of doing this?

Cheers, Mark.

Though I m not clear with your requirment... lemme guess like

You have some Public Folder (mail enabled) to be added to some distribution group. Yes ofcourse you may need to make these DG as security group with mail enabled one..... You can do that....

But you may not able to make a dynamic Distibution group to dynamic security Group...

If you clarify your requirment, we may can help you....

Sorry - They are looking at using Public Folders for external Contacts.  These will be organised into Department Folders as they are specific to the individual Departments, and no one other than that department should be able to access them.

I will be configuring Dynamic DLs for each Department, and was hoping to use these to grant permission to access the Public Folder Contacts for that Department.  I have read that when a Dynamic DL is granted access to a Public Folder it is converted into an Email Enabled Security Group.  If so will they still be dynamic?
