Some of the employees  from a specifc Distribution list complained  that they are able to receive email internelly through this DL but from  outside  they cannot receive

Well, i asked them to send email from their gmail id to that DL and i start monitoring in Hub transport server ( By using Message tracking , EMC–> Tool Box–> Message Tracking) From DL name option receive. I found that from gmail this DL reeived email . that means it reached in our Hub transport server but cannot see in user inbox


By default DL cannot receive emails from outside receipient untill you remove require that all senders are authenticated check box from DL properties –> Mail flow settings tab–> Message delivery restriction

If you want to apply to all DL’s give this below commands in Exchange Management Shell

Get-DistributionGroup | Set-DistributionGroup -RequireSenderAuthenticationEnabled:$false

Now members from this DL able to recive emails from outside receipients
