Hi Exports, I have this script that sets the RequireSenderAuthentication setting on true.
It works like a charm but now I have 3 DistributionGroup where the setting should be on false.
Can someone please help me to edit this file so I can reach my goal?

This how the script looks like:

Get-DistributionGroup | where {$_.RequireSenderAuthenticationEnabled -eq $False} | Set-DistributionGroup -RequireSenderAuthenticationEnabled $True

Kind regards,

Try to add the custom attribute1 with common word for the 3 Distribution groups. Like below and then try to query the command.

Set-DistributionGroup Group1 -CustomAttribute1 "Restricted"

Open in new window

Get-DistributionGroup | where {$_.RequireSenderAuthenticationEnabled -eq $False -and $_.CustomAttribute1 -ne "Restricted" } | Set-DistributionGroup -RequireSenderAuthenticationEnabled $True

Open in new window
