Do I need a mailbox for an e-mail enabled distribution group?
Posted on 2013-12-12
I have recently taken over from the IT Manager and been asked to give access to HR the recruitment e-mail. The e-mail in question is tied to a distribution group but there is no mailbox set up for it. There are no members in this group at the moment.
Can I assume that without any mailbox and the fact that AD is not running on the exchange server, this group actually doesn't work or do anything? I am assuming it was at some point directing e-mails to somebodies inbox.
I think I just need to remove the e-mail address from it and set up a mailbox in Exchange instead.
Some clarification please.
