Active Directory distribution list report

In Windows Active Directory (AD) or Microsoft Exchange, groups can refer to distribution groups or security groups. Distribution lists or distribution groups enable communication with multiple users in a fast, easy manner. Managing distribution groups in an Exchange (2003, 2007, 2010, and 2013) environment can be quite a tedious task.

At any given point in time, it's imperative for administrators to:

  • Get a complete list of all the distribution lists or distribution groups.
  • Export the distribution list members in bulk in CSV, XLSX, or PDF formats.
  • Extract only the inactive members or users from distribution groups.
  • Identify all the empty distribution groups or lists in the organization.
  • Have an up-to-date list of all the non-members of distribution lists.
  • Know all users who are members of any distribution group(s) or their nested groups.
  • Modify the group attributes or the attributes of the distribution lists.
  • Add or remove members from distribution lists.
  • Update the distribution lists.

And more.

Detailed Exchange distribution list reports or AD distribution group reports are vital for efficient management of distribution lists and also for effective cleanup of distribution lists.

It's tedious and difficult to query and extract distribution list reports using the native tools or PowerShell scripts since they require in-depth knowledge and understanding of multiple domains (i.e., AD or Exchange Server) and scripting.

With ADManager Plus, an AD distribution lists reporting tool, administrators will find it surprisingly easy and quick to extract or generate all the required information about distribution lists or distribution groups, with prebuilt reports like:

Administrators can also schedule all the AD distribution list reports to be generated and emailed to multiple users automatically at specified times in XLSX, CSV, PDF, or HTML formats.

Distribution Groups

Distribution lists can be either internal or external and are frequently used as mailing lists or for creating email distribution lists.

This report lists all the distribution groups in the Exchange Server and, more importantly, for every distribution list, it also displays these vital details:

  • Distribution group name
  • The corresponding members of the distribution list for each group
  • Its nested distribution lists or distribution groups

And more.

Distribution List Members

This report lists all the users who are members of at least one distribution list or any of the nested groups of a distribution list and provides the following information about each user:

  • Display name
  • Full Name
