If a user has the below syntax in exchange version 2013

Get-ADGroup -Identity “mygroup” | Set-ADGroup -GroupCategory Distribution

He needs to change the security groups to distribution groups.

He can do the following:

  • In exchange other than 2013, you can straight go to AUDC Click on the security group and then on properties. Change the group to distribution.
  • You mail-enable a security group. Make the security group to Universal. Create an email address in the email address field on the security group. Then, you will find it when you run the wizard to create a new distribution group. Select Existing Group and you will see the universal security group in the list.
