    From memory there is a setting in Active Directory Users & Computers on the actual AD group....

    Or the All Staff Distribution lists could be added to individual Local Contacts list. As there are only three to deal with this shouldn't be too big a task.

    We need to restrict access to the Global Staff Email list to 20 staff members

    Ah sorry, thought it was only three. Bit more of a task then may not be the best solution.

    Can you restrict this in Exchange System Manager under Security in the GAL?

    Hi,

    We do it this way....

    On the exchange server, navigate to " Active directory Users and Computers". Right click the distribution group you wish to restrict, and select properties. In the properties screen, select the "Exchange General" tab and towards the bottom is a section called "Message Restrictions". Tick the radio button labelled "Only From" and then simply add the users you wish to allow to send to this distribution group in the box.

    Hope this makes sense.

    Edit: Apologies, think i've mis-read this

    In AD - find the Staff Email group - go into Properties, select the Exchange General tab, towards the bottom, you will see "Accept Messages From", you need to select the "Only from" radio button and add the necessary users into the list box below.

    We do this at our school - I have attached an image of the page in the Exchange Version of Users and Computers that allows you to change it.

    As you will see, we have restricted access to send to that distribution list to another distribution list (Heads and Deputies) so we dont have to name people.

    People who try to send to it get a system message back saying they do not have permission to send to the list. It does not seem possible to amend the text in this message.

    HTH

    Cheers
