Exchange: How to Configure Bulk Message Restrictions on DL's Using Admodify
Restricting who has access to send to distribution lists or a particular user is a neat feature. For example, this comes in handy where you need to restrict who can send to a large distribution list or who can send to say a VP. However there is no native tools if you wish to configure restrictions on multiple Distribution lists or users at once. This can be accomplished by using ADMODIFY.
1. Download ADMODIFY
2. Run Admodify and select all your DL's that you wish to perform restrictions on.
3. Once you have selected your DL's go to the custom tab. Select "Make a

4. Open your DL's in ADUC and verify that the restrictions have been set.
The attribute for "From Authenticated Users Only" is msExchRequireAuthtoSendTo. If you would like to use this, enter this attribute in step 3 instead of Authorig.
