Exchange 2007 distribution group not sending to external contacts
Posted on 2014-04-18
Exchange 2007 on SBS '08. I run an internal group for domain users so we can blast messages through the co. And I knew I could create a contact with no domain permissions as well so I did that and put them in a group. It is for outside sales reps.
I noticed two errors, first when I add them to the TO field it refuses to expand the group.
It says: "Cannot perform the requested operation. The command selected is not valid for this recipient. There was an error while expanding the list. The list was not fully expanded." Does this every time I click the + sign. I shrugged at it but sent some test emails anyway. Not a single one left. I checked through-traffic through my third party spam filter and it apparently never left the server.
Did I miss some step or add them wrong?
I put them in the users folder under my business. There is another generic Users folder but it is mostly filled with security groups so I didn't put them there.
