  • Nesting a security group into a distribution list

    Can anybody please confrim this does not work?

    I stuck a few security groups into a distribution group and was shocked to find they security group members did not receive emails sent to the distribution group.

    Thanks

    If the security group is mail enabled then it should work i think.

      I have always worked on the basis that you cannot mix group types.

      Where possible, I never create distribution groups, because if I want to use them for permissions then a change takes place behind the scenes to make them security groups.

        It should work but the domain should be in Native-Mode (Domain functional level should be at least Windows 2000 native to support it)

        It depends on the environment but as a general rule I'd do the opposite and use mail enabled Security Groups sparingly in order to keep the User access token small.
