How do you exclude a specific email address from a dynamic distribution group in exchange 2010?

Hello,
I'm trying to find the exact command to use in powershell to remove a user from a dynamic distribution list called "Everybody."  I found some examples on the web but I must be doing something wrong because it doesn't work. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks in advance.

Hi,


You can exclude a specific user from a DD group with the Set-DynamicDistributionGroup commandlet. Specifically with the -RecipientFilter option.

Example: Set-DynamicDistributionGroup -Identity MadeUpName -RecipientFilter {((RecipientType -eq 'UserMailbox') -and -not(Name -like 'Journal User'))}

Note that this example is just with recipient type = userMailbox. You can get the current recipientFilter of your DD group and modify it however from powershell.

(get-DynamicDistributionGroup -Identity MadeUpName).RecipientFilter


Thanks,

Thanks Andy,
What's the proper syntax if I wanted to add 3 users at a time? Would it be: Set-DynamicDistributionGroup -Identity MadeUpName -RecipientFilter {((RecipientType -eq 'UserMailbox') -and -not(Name -like 'Journal User1')) -and -not(Name -like 'Journal User2')) -and -not(Name -like 'Journal User3'))} ?
I ask that because I tried to add one name at a time, but each time I typed the command it overwrote the filter.

Hi,

Yes you are correct, here is the Example

Set-DynamicDistributionGroup -Identity DDGName -RecipientFilter {((RecipientType -eq 'UserMailbox') -and -not(Name -like 'Display Name 1') -and -not(Name -like 'Display Name 2') -and -not(Name -like 'Display Name 3') -and -not(Name -like 'Display name etc.'))}

thanks,
Andy
