Restricting Email to Distribution List

I am running Exchange 2007 SP3 and need to restrict several DL so that only authorized users can send internal email to them.

I have created a Allowed-Senders DL, pupulated with allowed users to send. I then added this Allowed-Senders DL under "Mail Flow Settings" > " Message Delivery Restrictions"

If i tried to send a message from any regular user to a restricted DL, i get a "not authoirzed" error which is expected, but when i send an email from authorized users, I don't get the email nor an error.

Any thoughts? Is it that i must add users individually?

Yes for Internal users you have to add them as not to be able to send email to DL or only certain users can send to DL option

Sorry Rancy, don't understand your comment very well. Are you saying the users have to be added as "ALLOWED" individually and not part of a DL. SO if i wanted to allowe estaff@company.com to send to all@company.com this wont work?  I'll have to add the members of estaff individually to "all"?

What kind of group did you create to control access? Was it a Distribution List or a mail Enabled Security Group? If the latter it needs to be the former.
Exchange doesn't convert the groups like it did in previous versions.

Use a Mail-Enabled Universal Security Group.
This will work as required.
