In my Exchange 2007 environment, I have several hundred Dynamic Distribution Groups that currently have the "RequireSenderAuthenticationEnabled" set to $false and I'd like to change the value to true.  I've currently got a list of the Dynamic Distribution Groups in a .txt file (separated out by name one line at a time), and I'm setting a variable by running "Get-Content allareas.txt".  Below is my script:

$Recipients = get-content allareas.txt

foreach ($Recipient in $Recipients)
{
   if ($Recipient.RecipientType -eq "DynamicDistributionGroup") {
      set-DynamicDistributionGroup $Recipient.name -RequireSenderAuthenticationEnabled:$True}
}

Upon running this script, nothing happens.  I don't get any errors or any text back in the EMS that would indicate it ran successfully.  If I go into the EMC and look at the Dynamic Distribution Groups I see that the box is NOT checked to Require all senders to be authenticated.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

How is the proposed script any different than the script I posted in the original question?

Nevermind. I solved my own problem with the following script:

Get-Content d:\tools\allareas.txt |  Set-DynamicDistributionGroup -RequireSenderAuthenticationEnabled:$true
