There are many many attributes that you do not see in ADUC. To be able to surface the attributes in the GUI, it needs to be modified which requires some programming ability:

But you can at least look at all the attributes through ADUC by:
- Click on the view menu and select Advanced
- Go to the properties of the group and click on the Attribute Editor tab

From this tab you can view and edit all the properties of the object though it's not user friendly.

When i go to the Attribute Editor tab of the object (Group), i do not see the mailgoogle attribute. What is the classes object name for users group? Is it group? if yes the attribute is there

You may need to set permissions on the attribute in ADSI edit to allow it to be shown.

Can you give me explanation on how to do that?

You'll have to compare the settings with your user class.

To set the security:
- Open ADSI edit and connect to the schema
- Navigate to the class and open the properties
- Click on Security -> Advanced
- Click Add, select the group you want to assign the permissions to (probably Authenticated Users), then locate the attribute in the list and select the appropriate permissions (probably read)
