How to setup send-as permission on a mail-enabled Distribution group

Posted on Updated on

You can add send-as permission on a mail-enabled Distribution group by going to Active Directory.

1.  Open the properties of the group object you would like to add send-as permission

2.  Under Security, add the user or user group you want send-as permission to work

3.  Under the permissions window, allow ‘Send-as’ by checking on the box

 

To verify if the changes took effect, open Exchange PowerShell and run the command;

get-distributiongroup “name of distro group” | get-adpermission | where {($_.ExtendedRights -like “*Send-As*”)}

 

Please note:  The AD changes might take a while to replicate to the whole domain, depending on how large your organization is.  Users may also need to re-login to their computers before they can start sending emails in behalf of the distribution group.
