How to mail enable an Active Directory Group on Exchange 2010

I needed to take a security group and convert it turn it into a distribution group. This is actually pretty simple.

First edit the group and change it to a distribution group. Make sure it’s a universal group, only universal groups can be mail enabled. Give it an email address, make sure the membership is correct and move on to your exchange console.

  1. Go to distribution Groups
  2. Right Click
  3. New distribution Group
  4. Existing Account
  5. Done

Now you have mail enabled your group. Enjoy.
