Some of our users need a mailbox....but no other Active Directory memberships. I will create an account for them through Exchange and be done with it.

However, we have realized that these users miss emails directed to the "All Employees" distribution list. How can I add automatically add the "All Employees" membership (for the distribution list) to new mail boxes?

Thanks.

Do you use nest all users under a root OU?

You can use AD Query Group to leverage your AD structure.

Here is an example I used for my Production environment.
I have all the users under OU structure
FirmName
Production[
Users
Computers

Query Base Dist List
I think even if you do not have all your users under one root OU.

I posted for exchange 2003 and this most likely will not work.

You can try this link to achieve this in exchange 2010.
