Trying to set up a new dynamic distribution group, but keep getting syntax errors.  Not sure if my parenthesis are in the correct order or the { }.  Below is an example of one of the variations I've tried.


New-DynamicDistributionGroup -Name "trend" -OrganizationalUnit "" -RecipientFilter {(RecipientType -eq 'UserMailbox' -and (Title -like '*Trend*' -or Title -like '*Desktop*') –and –not(Name –like ‘SystemMailbox{*’) –and –not(Name –like ‘CAS_{*’))}

Receive message:
New-DynamicDistributionGroup : Cannot bind parameter 'RecipientFilter' to the t
arget. Exception setting "RecipientFilter": """ is not a valid operator. For a
list of supported operators see the command help.
"(RecipientType -eq 'UserMailbox' -and (Title -like '*Trend*' -or Title -like '
*Desktop*') -and -not(Name -like `SystemMailbox{*') -and -not(Name -like `CAS_{
*'))" at position 91."
