E-mail Distribution List and Mail Enabled Security Groups - Admin Guide

An e-mail distribution list is used to send an e-mail message to multiple recipients (i.e. members of the list), while e-mail enabled security group can also be used to control access to booking and administering rooms and equipment. You must be the owner of the list or group in order to edit it. To find out which lists you are an owner of, please see My Groups website.

If you make these changes to the Global Address List, they will be reflected immediately, and will be synchronised with the "offline global address list" of other users within 24 hours.

To edit an e-mail distribution list or e-mail enabled security group, perform the following steps:

  1. Sign in to Exchange Admin Portal (https://admin.exchange.microsoft.com/?page=groups#/) using your UWin Account.
  2. Click on Group I own tab.
  3. Click on the name of the group you want to edit to see its profile.
  4. Click on Members tab to see and edit the list of members and owners of the group.
  5. Click on View and manage members link to make changes to group members.
  6. To remove existing member(s), select one or more names and click on Delete.
  7. To add new member(s), click on Add then enter the UWIn ID or name of the person in the Search bar and press Enter. Select the desired name or names, then click on Add button on the bottom.

Note that in order for a person to be added to any list in this Global Address List, they must have an active UWin account listed in the UWindsor directory. It is not possible to add external addresses to any list in the Global Address List.

By looking at the Membership section of the person's Contact Card in Outlook, you will be able to see all of the distribution lists and groups that the person belongs to.
If you want to search by last name only, enter the last name in the To:. CC: or BCC: field, and hit Control+K or click the "Check names button. This will display a dialog with all of the people with that last name. You can then select the correct person based on their first name, title, e-mail address, office address, phone number, etc.
Users of Outlook can create their own e-mail distribution lists in Outlook that are known as Contact Lists.
