Adding users to Exchange Distribution Group

Last week, I showed you how you can create distribution groups. Those groups are relatively worthless, however, without any users added to them. How we go about doing this, depends on what console you decide to use.

Exchange console:

  1. Open your Microsoft Exchange console
  2. Browse to Recipient Configuration > Distribution Group
  3. Find the group in question, and double click it
  4. Switch to the “Members” tab, and click the “Add” button:
    Exchange group properties
  5. Search for, and add the users in question

Active Directory Users and Computers:

  1. Open your Active Directory Console
  2. Browse to the distribution group, and double click it.
  3. Switch to the “Members” tab, and click the “Add” button:
    Group properties
  4. Search for, and add, the users you want
  5. Don’t forget to save the changes; click OK to exit the view
