SharePoint 2010 workflow sends email to AD group. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Guys,

    I am trying to send SharePoint 2010 workflow sends email to AD group. For this I have tried the following but still no luck:                               

    • Assigned email address to the AD security group
    • Created SharePoint (SP)Group and add these AD group in there
    • In my profile sync connections I included these group and ran the full sync

     When I used the SP group in the workflow the email will not send to members but if I put people individually they would get email. 

    According to this article from Microsoft as the best practice I need to enable  SharePoint Directory Management Service:


    I wonder whether another options available for me without enabling this service? Or this is an only option I have.

    I also found the post below which is suggested to customise my filter connection:


    Well in the 2010 I can not see attribute as ObjectClass so I am not sure how this works?  For this as I mentioned before I added  ‘Groups’ containers in my AD sync connection setting for User Profile Sync,  so I think that should be fine. Unless if I miss something else!

    This is sounds very simple but it’s really baffle me and don’t

    Any advice greatly appreciated.
