Hi Dave,

Thank you for your reply.

The way i am trying to acheive this is by browsing to a particular distrubution group, selecting its properties,then mail flow settings,message delivery restrictions then properties. Then at the bottom of the dialog box there is an option to add a distrubution group that is to be restricted. When i select the group and then select reply i get the error message stated in my first post.

Does this make sense at all or do you need any further information?

Thank you in advance Dave

It could be that there are illegal characters present in the alias. Exchange 2010 is a lot more strict then Exchange 2003, so check whether there are spaces and other in the alias and other illegal characters which are possible legacy leftovers. Try opening the properties of the distribution group you want to add, the Exchange console will immediately warn you that there are errors.

Also, did you try it via the Exchange Management Shell with Set-DistributionGroup ? The syntax would be:

Set-DistributionGroup -Identity <DistributionGroupIdParameter> -RejectMessagesFromDLMembers <MultiValuedProperty>

I've found some issues when the account you are using, doesn't have a mailbox and you are using the console. You could also try another account. Other issues could be permissions of inheritance in " Active Directory Users and Computers" . If this doesn't work, try running the Exchange Best Practice Analyzer in the Toolbox of the Exchange Management Console.

Really??? That is the most obvious thing to try first :/

I surprised people don"t shout when this kind of answer is given.
