adding or removing users from a Dynamic Distribution Group, Exchange 2010

We use Exchange 2010 and several distribution groups were created before I began working here. Many are the typical "Mail Non_Universal Group" and I just go to PROPERTIES and there is a MEMBERS tab, adding and removing users is very easy. BUT...We have some that are "Dynamic Distribution Group" If you go to PROPERTIES I do not see a MEMBERS tab. I do not see a corresponding group in Active Directory either. We have disabled a few users that are in a specific Distribution Group and I need to get them out because when we send to that group we get bounce backs. How the heck can I modify a Dynamic Distribution Group?

This will show you why this user(s) is included, i.e. They are in a particular OU, or have a department, or something set on their AD user Object. So simply move them, or remove that attribute, and they will be removed from the group automatically.

well I ran your command and did get some feedback, but do not see what it tells me where users are added or removed

For this you could remove the city attribute from the user and then it will no longer match it's filter.

oh I think I see it...the users bouncing back all have the city that popped up in the address tab on active directory. I moved that word and the bounce backs stopped

Yes it did :) Every user who has City set to Decatur* will be in this group,

If you want to remove user joe.soap go to his AD user object, and remove the entry that looks like Decatur????? from his City Attribute :)
