ADManager Plus

Active Directory distribution list report

In Windows Active Directory (AD) or Microsoft Exchange, groups can refer to distribution groups or security groups. Distribution lists and distribution groups let multiple users quickly and easily communicate. Managing distribution groups in an Exchange (2003, 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016, and 2019) environment can be quite a tedious task. If the admins could export the members of distribution lists, it would make it easier for them to manage the distribution groups without any hassle.

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 which users are members of any distribution group(s) along with their nested groups.
  • Modify the group attributes or the attributes of the distribution lists.
  • Add or remove members from distribution lists.
  • Update distribution lists.

And more.

Detailed Exchange distribution list reports and AD distribution group reports are vital for efficient management of distribution lists and 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 can quickly and easily export distribution list members and generate all the required information about them using 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, and HTML formats.

Distribution Groups

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