is there any reason why an external user cannot email an internal distribution list? this is exchange 2010 we have the distribution list open so that there is no authorization required and you can receive mail from anyone. we also have the external users contact information in exchange mail contacts. so I was wondering is there any reason why the user on the outside continuously get an error that says she doesn't have permissions to email that group.

Run
Get-DistributionGroup -Identity distributiongroup@contoso.com | FL

Open in new window

and post the output here. I have seen instances where this actually had to be turned off at the schema level for distribution groups (on the AD Mail Enabled Group object via ADSIEdit) but I am curious what is shown here.

Do you also have a smarthost? Sometimes you need to add the distribution group to the smarthost (e.g: firewall, spam filter, ect) for it to authenticate internally. I know this was the case with FOPE / EOP and some Symantec products.

Here are the results. I also just noticed that the distribution group is actually a Global (non-universal) Security Group. The group does recieve emails but I think that since its a Global group scope, that is what may be causing this issue. What do you think?

When the expert mentioned "AD Mail enabled group object" it made me think about looking at the type of group this issue was happening to, and that's when I noticed it was a security group with global scope.
