Distribution Lists

Exchange Distribution Lists Management

ADManager Plus is a web-based Exchange management tool that makes it possible to create and manage distribution lists in multiple versions of Microsoft Exchange Server from a single window. Be it Exchange (Exchange 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013, and 2016) or its messaging clients like MS Outlook, managing all the distribution groups is a crucial yet time consuming task for any administrator.

Unlike the native MS tools like Exchange Management Console (EMC) or Exchange Management Shell, which is based on Windows PowerShell, this software, with its intuitive UI and mouse-click-based actions, turns mass management of Exchange groups into a simple and short activity through its easy-to-use features like:

Bulk distribution list provisioning

Using the option to create bulk groups, you can provision multiple new distribution groups in your Exchange environment along with all the required settings, including Exchange settings, group membership (members and memberOf), and managed by. To create new groups, all that you have to do is:

  • Create a CSV file with the list of distribution groups to be created, along with the required values for their attributes, like group name, group scope, members, memberOf, container, email address, and mail alias.
  • Import this file into the tool to create multiple new groups in one go.

Moreover, using the create single group option, you can quickly create distribution groups even on a case-by-case basis. That is, if needed, you can also create just one group and configure all its attributes, including Exchange attributes, in a single action.

Manage distribution group membership

This Exchange distribution list management tool allows you to manage or modify the membership for any distribution list by adding or removing members to the group as and when needed, with just UI-based actions. Based on your requirement, you can update the members list in any of the following ways:

Modify distribution group members

You can use this to modify the list of members of any distribution group in your Exchange environment. After selecting the required group, you can add new members by choosing the required users from your Exchange setup. Alternatively, you can also specify the list of users to be added to this distribution list through a CSV file. This feature also allows you to update other group attributes like memberOf, managed by, and Exchange-specific settings (mail alias, delivery settings, etc.) from the same window.

Modify distribution lists' members using a CSV

This allows you to add or remove members from multiple distribution lists in just a single process. To update the list of members in distribution groups:

  • Create a CSV file with the list of all groups to be modified, along with their group name and the list of users to be added to the groups.
  • Import this file into the tool to update the members list for all the groups specified in the file.

Bulk update and management of the list of users who belong to any particular distribution group is now easier and quicker than ever.

Mass reprovisioning of distribution groups

Updating or modifying distribution groups becomes a script-free, mouse-click-based process through this tool's Modify Groups using CSV and Single Group Modification features. Based on the attributes to be modified or the action to be performed, you can:

Modify organization attributes

Using this option, you can modify distribution groups' organization attributes, like email, group description, memberOf, and managed by. You can also add or remove group members and clear their group memberships. The highlight, though, is the ability to make changes to these attributes for multiple groups in a single step.

Modify Exchange attributes

This allows you to modify Exchange mailbox-specific attributes, like mail alias, delivery restrictions - receiving message size limit, and restrictions to 'accept messages' (from authenticated users, from everyone, etc.), for multiple distribution groups in one action.

Move distribution groups

This makes moving multiple distribution lists or groups from one location (container) to another effortless since you can do it in bulk. Just select the groups to be moved, or specify the required groups through a CSV file, and choose the new location to move all the selected groups instantly. Moving groups is now as easy as that!

For all the above features, you can specify the groups to be modified using:

  • Search: This option is provided with every group modification feature. You can use this search to locate the required distribution group(s) from your Exchange environment.
  • CSV import: Just create a CSV file with the necessary group names, along with the new values for the attributes to be updated or modified, and import the file into the tool to modify all the specified groups at once.

Modify distribution groups using a CSV

While the features introduced above allow you to modify a specific category of attributes of distribution lists, modifying groups via CSV import gives you the freedom to modify all the necessary attributes of distribution groups in just one swift process.

To modify groups in mass, create a CSV file containing the names of distribution groups along with the new values for all their attributes to be modified. Import this file into ADManager Plus to update the attributes with the new values specified in the file.

Bulk distribution list deprovisioning

This MS Exchange management tool empowers you to deprovision distribution groups one at a time or in bulk at just a click of your mouse. You can locate the groups to be deleted using the built-in search option or specify the list of distribution lists to be deleted from your Exchange server through a CSV file that can be imported into the tool.

Additionally, this MS Exchange server management and reporting tool allows you to generate in-depth reports on distribution list members and members who aren't a part of any distribution lists in specific domains. They can obtain delivery recipient settings and feature-based reports and also schedule these reports automatically at specific intervals. Besides managing distribution lists in multiple versions of Exchange Server, ADManager Plus also allows you to manage distribution groups as well as users, computers, groups, and contact objects in your Windows Active Directory environment too, all from the same window.

Benefits of using ADManager Plus for Exchange distribution list management:

  • Create and manage distribution lists in multiple versions of Microsoft Exchange Server from a single window.
  • Replace EMC and EMS with an intuitive, UI-based tool.
  • Locate any distribution group easily using the powerful search option.
