Email notifications to a Exchange distribution list

Hello everyone,

I am using SAS DI Studio to send out notifications and so far I'm finding challenges when sending to a distribution list.

I may be doing something incorrect just wanted to see if anyone has had this scenario.

The e-mail is Outlook 2010.

Regards,

Jonathan

Re: Email notifications to a Exchange distribution list

I checked the distribution list at my providers mail options SERVER SIDE

Works nice one generic mail-address and  on several mail-accounts then message is coming in.

As you are working with Outlook you can have mailinglists in the outlook clientside. Of course they won't work, your mailserver is not aware of them.

Check with your mail-server provider whether you have mailinglists at the server-side being defined.

When you have the publishing framework in a metadata environment you could think on using that one.

As all users are defined in the SAS metadata the can be configures having a mailing-address and by that set up mailing-lists.  (Would go for mailing list with your mailprovder).

Re: Email notifications to a Exchange distribution list

Yep something conceptional is incorrect as your are mentioning Outlook 2010.  
Outlook is a mailclient communicating with a mailserver (send/receive smtp pop imap).

I you are going to send mail with DI you are also going to communicate with a mailserver setting the systemoptions to that part.

If you get into mailingslist support at that part you could possibly use that.

Thank you Japp,

This is very helpful information.

I'm looking into.

I'm able to send e-mail notifications when each individual recipient is added.

When I use a distribution nothing happens.
