I create a new Dynamic Distribution Group and I set the condition for :

CustomAttribute10 to "Énergie et des Ressources naturelles"

But when I check on the button "Preview", any users appears? (see attach file)

I have 2600 users with the CustomAttribute10 = "Énergie et des Ressources naturelles"
and 1800 users with the CustomAttribute10 = "Forêts, de la Faune et des Parcs"

Do you have an idea?

Maybe some misspelling or whatever?
Could you run on exchange powershell: get-mailbox | where {$_.customattribute10 -like "Énergie et des Ressources naturelles"}
This will give you users must be on your dynamic group.

When dynamic lists are correctly populated you can try users appears on.

The solution is :

Set-DynamicDistributionGroup -identity "Name" -RecipientContainer "Domain"

• While the preview may show all users, mail sent to the DL may not include all of those users.  This will happen if you do not use the –RecipientContainer option when you initially create the DDL.  By default, when Transport expands the DDL for mail delivery, it will only deliver to the recipients that are within the same OU with the DDL.  To include recipients outside of that OU, you MUST use the –RecipientContainer option.
