I have a distribution group called staff with the smtp address staff@domain.com. When trying to send an email from my gmail to staff@domain.com it is bouncing back. What should I look at to get this to work. Any help is appreciated.

Can you provide the actual wording on the NDR message?  Go ahead and mask the actual address if you need to.

Did you disable the Sender Authentication?
if not, then that could be your issue.

if you go into the properties of the group in Active Directory - is the email address you want listed?
Was this group created on the exchange server?

Yes if I go into properties of the group in AD the email address is there. I did not create this group it was when I started working here. I would assume it was created on the exchange server. It is a mixed group of email address' at our domain and other external domains.

How's the group created? security-Local or Security-Global? Outside communication this should be global.

Is it also possible that since the group contains external addresses that it is being treated as a relay?

Yes it is global. I think I found the issue. I totally forgot we are using an offisite sendio anti-spam box. I don't administer it so I had to send an email to the company who does. Maybe they accidently deleted this address out of there or something. I will update when I hear back from them. Thanks for the help.

open the group properties from EMC -- and go to delivery options --> un-check "require all users to be authenticated"

It ended being that the address was not added to the sendio . I think it must have gotten deleted somehow but in any case re added and it works. Thanks for the help.
