I don't suggest to do it via BLOCK approach, but rather via ALLOW only specific groups/users to ba able to send to this distribution group.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

You could setup a Transport Rule under Org Config/Hub Transport

Hi ,

I tried transport rule. But its giving me error. do I need to select the  the 2 option . i.e. from people & to & reject  together & after that the actions option.

I can't say exactly because this exchange server 2012 is in different site managed by another person. If you can provide me the screen shots it will be good for me to explain to him.

Apply this rule if...

The Sender is... (select the person you want to stop from sending to the group)

and

The recipient is a member of ... (select the group you don't want them to send to)

Do the following... (here you can choose what you want to do, either Reject it with a custom little note or whatever you prefer)

Then just in this example I added an exception, here I'd add the address I DONT want affected by the rule

To be on the safe side, set it up for yourself first, so only add your address to the send option.

This is of course if you are running Exch 2013, the same applies for 2010 but of course the interface looks different.

Hope it helps...

So the principle is more or the same

 SS2
Add the from people/address and the to address/distribution list

SS3
Select the rejection option and add a custom rejection note, add a code as well, my example is 5.7.999

SS4
Then finally add the exception list, typically who you don't want the rule to apply to.
