I have a puzzling issue. On occassion, I need to grant access to certain calendars to a specific group inside my organization. I usually do so by running the following command:
PS C:\Windows\system32> Add-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity email@example.com:\calendar -user firstname.lastname@example.org -AccessRights reviewer
email@example.com is a distibution list created by us with the entire team as members and this works perfectly.
However, if I remove these permissions and try to re-add permissions for a different distribution list, say firstname.lastname@example.org , I get the following error:
The user "email@example.com" is either not valid SMTP address, or there is no m
+ CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (0:Int32) [Add-MailboxFolderPermis
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : 4350690D,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.StoreTask
I have checked that the address is indeed correct, and cannot find any differences, apart from the members, between the two lists, so am puzzled as to why this is occurring. Can anybody shed some light on this please?
Thanks a million in advance.
All the best,
Thanks for your post. For setting the permission for a distribution group, you need to enable the distribution group as a security group . For this case, you need to re-create the distribution group and select "Make this group a security group " option when you re-create it.
Thanks, Neo Zhu
