Alerts not sent to Public distribution RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have a public distribution list which has individual users and other PDL's added into it(cascading PDL'S)

    Ex: - The root PDL is "RootPDL" which has individual users u1,u2,u3,u4 and other PDL's (ChildPDL1 with users c1,c2,c3; ChildPDL2 with users d1,d2,d3; and ChildPDL3 with users e1,e2,e3).

    This RootPDL is added to SharePoint 2010 list so that 'Alerts' can be received by the users.

    All the PDL's are security groups in AD and below setting is unchecked in Exchange

    'Required that all senders are authenticated' 

    With above settings, alerts are sent to individual users added to the root PDL which are u1,u2,u3 and u4. But users(c1,c2,c3,d1,d2,d3,e1,e2,e3) inside ChildPDL's still do not receive any alerts.

    is this a know issue?

    Are we not supposed to use cascading PDLS which setting up for "Alerts".

    or any other way of making it work?

    Any inputs/suggestions/information about this issue would be helpful.

    According to your post, my understanding is that you could not send alert email to the group in the Distribution List.

    What did you mean the Distribution List? Did you mean the Distribution Group in Exchange?

    It just takes the list of members in the root group. It cannot parse the groups in the root group. You should put the users outside the child PDLs.

    I would not say its a SP issue. SP was supposed to sent email to root DL and it did that. How it carries forward by exchange is up to it. So you need to check accordingly. Also its better if you post same question in exchange server related forums. You'll get more relevant answers there.


    Thanks
