  • Hi,


    Could you explain why you want to retrieve the Exchange group to SharePoint? If you want to add the Exchange distribution group to SharePoint group, I’m afraid this cannot be achieved. In fact, when you add group in SharePoint, you can only select security group existed in AD as security groups are used to manage user access to SharePoint.


    Distribution groups are intended to be used solely as email distribution lists. These lists are for use with email applications such as Microsoft Exchange or Outlook. You can add and remove contacts from the list so that they will or will not receive email sent to the distribution group. You can't use distribution groups to assign permissions on any objects.


    For more information, please refer to:



    Hope this helps.
