Hi all,

Does any one know an outlook add in taht will allow users to view the member ship of a dynamic distribution list from with in outlook? I know that the member ship is only populated when sending an email, but I am looking for a add in that will allow a user to pick a distribution list and go do the LDAP loop up and return the membership to them so they can see it from Outlook.

Cheers

I believe, you can't list DG members using LDAP/add-in. The only thing that comes to my mind is to use Get-DynamicDistributionGroup PowerShell.

Alexei, Powershell is all well and good but I want users to be able to see membership and I cant expect them to fire up powershell to get the results which is why I want it to happen in outlook.

The answer is given. No way in Outlook to view members of DGs.
