    Exchange 2007 (Distribution Groups Help / Advice)

    Hi,
    I have two questions. How can I disable a distribution list, without deleting it, so that it can be enabled in a few weeks time.

    Also If I was to send an E-Mail to a distribution, and found that I sent it to the wrong group, is there an easy way to get rid of it as oposed to going to all 100 members of the group and getting them to delete it?

    Please Help
    Regards

    Hello,

    In the exchange management console you can go to Recipient Configuration | Distrubution Group, select the goup you want to disable and simply right click and select disable, this will remove all the Exchange properties from the group but leave it in AD. You can then re-enable it later.

    As your gettng the messages back from a distribution group you might be able to recall the message by opening it in your send items clicking on file and going to recall (Office 2010 here) but i've never tried it for messages sent to a distribution group.

    Recall message works for messages sent to a distribution group, used it last night for the first time.
