Resource mailboxes incorrectly being included in Dynamic Distribution Group

I have a DDG that I don't want to include Resource mailboxes. Properties, Filter tab has "The following specific types" button selected, and "Resource mailboxes" unchecked.

If I run get-recipient for the DDG, it lists all the resources (conf rooms, equipment, etc.), as well as the users I want in the DDG. Get-recipient displays RecipientType as UserMailbox, even though EMC shows them as Resources. I assume that is why the Resource mailboxes are included?

How do I change the resources to not be UserMailboxes? I would prefer not to make a filter using set-dynamicdistributiongroup.

Only with Set-DynamicDistributionGroup you will manage to do it. You need to filter deep.
All mailbox recipients have RecipientType = UserMailbox, but look at RecipientTypeDetails property, specially at RoomMailbox, EquipmentMailbox

Are you saying I should create a filter RecipientTypepDetails ne 'RoomMailbox' or EquipmentMailbox'?

Yes, you should exclude those 2 categories. I know I did it in the past such thing, but I don't have with me right now the scripts.

The filter is working correctly for Resources and Rooms, by using the RecipientTypeDetailsValue parameter.

Set-DynamicDistributionGroup all-users -RecipientFilter {((((RecipientType -eq 'UserMailbox') -or (RecipientType -eq 'MailUser'))) -and (-not(Name -like 'SystemMailbox{*')) -and (-not(Name -like 'CAS_{*')) -and (-not(RecipientTypeDetailsValue -eq 'MailboxPlan')) -and (-not(RecipientTypeDetailsValue -eq 'DiscoveryMailbox')) -and (-not(RecipientTypeDetailsValue -eq 'ArbitrationMailbox')) -and (-not(RecipientTypeDetailsvalue -eq 'RoomMailbox')) -and (-not(RecipientTypeDetailsValue -eq 'EquipmentMailbox')))}
