We have Exchange 2010, I am trying to create a dynamic distribution group that contains users with Exchange mailboxes, is within a certain OU and has a description of "xxxx".

I don't see the ability to filter based on the description field using the EMC.

Can you accomplish this task using the EMS? I've tried looking at the cmdlet New-DynamicDistributionGroup

1 Answer 1


You can run this in EMS New-DynamicDistributionGroup -Name "GroupA" -RecipientFilter {( Description -eq 'xxxx') } -RecipientContainer "Users" For your reference, New-DynamicDistributionGroup

  • Thanks, I read the documentation for that cmdlet but apparently didn't read enough.
