Can we use dynamic group to populate users when emailing to that distribution group and How?

Basically i want to email all mail-enabled users in specific OU, can i achieve this using dynamic distribution group, so whenever I email to that dynamic distribution group it automatically email all those users who are in that specific OU?

New mail-enabled users will be added on daily basis in that specific OU so instead of making them member of static distribution group can we use dynamic distribution group?


Thanks

You should be able easily to do that:

In EMC:
1) Create New Dynamic Distribution Group
2) First window, select where you want the Distro group to reside, and name and alias, click next.
2) Second window, under filter settings, you should be able to browse to the OU where the users are. then filter to select users with exchange properties only.
3) you can leave the other "filter settings" alone.

You can test your results with the "Preview" button.

PeteLong, is it possible to create dynamic distribution group based on two OUs, basically more than one OU as filter?

is it possible that we can specify two OU locations for one Dynamic distribution group.

Basically, I need to create dynamic distribution list for the members residing on two different OUs? What will be the way to do this?

Also, if not then can we have nested distribution group, means that one dynamic distibution group part of another dynamic distibution group? thanks
