Creating A Distribution List For Microsoft Exchange

The following article will demonstrate how to setup a Distribution List with Microsoft Exchange. A Distribution List can be used to add members of your domain (and contacts) to one exclusive email address. When an email is sent to that Distribution List the email is automatically sent out to all members of that list. Let's take a look at how to set this up:

1. First thing you'll want to do is select Manage Distribution Lists in the Microsoft Exchange box.

Note: If you have multiple domains you may be prompted to select a domain name. 

2. In the next screen select Add distribution List.


3. Next give your Distribution List a Display name and a unique Email address, then select All Users. A list of members (and contacts) will be available to choose from; check the box on the left-hand side of the users you want to be part of the list and then select Save.
