I need to create a Dynamic Distribution Lists of people in several OUs.  I see in the GUI that I can only specific one OU and I need to make sure the DDL contains users in several OUs and I think PS can do it.  

Can someone assist me with the syntax please?

I need a DDL consisting of users in multiple OUs in AD.

Thanks

I need a Dynamic Dist List for email.  I was also hoping for some sample code like new-distributiongroup  "nationwide" -recipientcontainer thisOU AND thisOU AND thisOU....

something like that.   The GUI only lets you pick one OU.  I need to pick several.

This is what I'm using and it's not working:

New-DynamicDistributionGroup -Name "NationWide" -Alias "NationWide" -RecipientFilter{(((recipienttype -eq 'usermailbox') -and ((RecipientContainer -eq 'domain.local/people/working') )) )}
