How to set up a security group to be email enabled

In an Exchange environment, only Universal Groups can be emailed enabled. To convert a Global or Domain Local group to a Universal Group:

- Open the properties of the group.

- In the Group Scope box, click Universal.

- Click OK.

To mail enable the group:

- Click Start à All Programs à Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 à Exchange Management Console

- Expand Microsoft Exchange à Microsoft Exchange On-Premises à Recipient Configuration

- Click Distribution Group.

- Click New Distribution Group in the Action pane.

- Select Existing Group and click Browse.

- Click the group and then click OK.

- Click Next

- Provide an Alias for the group and click Next

- Click New

- Click Finish

The group is now email enabled.

To email enable an existing universal group with powershell:

- Click Start à All Programs à Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 à Exchange Management Shell

- We will assume the name of the group is Group1 with an SMTP address of Contoso.com.

- Type Enable-DistributionGroup –Identity “Group1” –Alias “Group 1” –DisplayName “Group1” –PrimarySMTPAddress Group1@Contoso.com
