Convert AD security group to Email Distribution Group


Use AD groups to send emails to members.

If you have an AD group that you cannot find in the outlook address book or list of exchange distribution groups, then follow the steps




  • Make sure that the security group is set to Universal
  • Run the PS CMD:

Enable-DistributionGroup -Identity “groupname”


  • Then you will get an email address for that group which you can use later.
