Distribution group alert

Is there any way that exchange 2007 can be setup so that if a user adds a distribution group that they get pop up alert.
I'm aware if a user adds an email attachment that is larger than the exchange limit the user receives a pop up but is this possible with a distribution group?
I want users to be basically be alerted as there are a lot of users in the distribution group.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi Sid,

Unfortunately I never saw that function in Exchange.

Perhaps a way of doing it is to create a powershell script to get all DL and save it in a file.
Then create a task to check new DL against the file created previously .

Hope it helps

regards,
D.

Sorry it's not that i need to be alerted when a dl is edited. I want this really as a warning mechanism for end users.
Perhaps other people could share how they control distribution groups from users accidentally sending email to them.
Quite often users don't appreciate how many people the email goes to! Thanks

Ok.

Probably this could help you Restriction to DL

This is for exchange 2010 but it's the same for exchange 2007.

Hope it helps.

Typically the best practice when it comes to large distribution groups is locking them down using "Message Delivery Restrictions" and only allowing specific people the rights to send to the distribution list.

Another method is creating multiple Address Book Policies so that users with a specific address book policy can only see users and distribution group that they have access to.
