Nest mail enabled security groups.

Hi All,

I have mail enabled security groups in my environment. The mail enabled security group functions as a distribution group. Currently, the users are direct member to this security group. So:

Member of "Mail-enabled-security-group" = User1, User2, User3

I would like to nest the mail enabled security group to the role based group so i dont have to add new colleagues one by one every time. Yet looks like nesting mail enabled security groups does not work.  When i nest the group and try to mail to the distribution group i get "cannot perform the requested operation. the command selected is not valid for this recipient"

Any advice how to use nested distribution groups?

Thanks in advance.

Yeah, you don't.... You use powershell to drop multiple users into specific groups.

So the only way to automate this process is to create a scheduled powershell script which adds users with a role based group to this distribution group? There is no other way to automate this in 2020?
