How to configure Incoming E-Mail in SharePoint Server 2007 with Exchange Server 2007 (Part 2)

In my previous post, you should configure incoming e-mail for lists and document libraries without issues.

However, there are still some issue on configuration e-mail distribution group, let us review the settings step by step.

First navigate to People and Groups > Change Group Settings Page, you will see two new sections available for configuration.

However, if you enabled E-Mail Distribution List, you will see an error like this:

Very annoying, the cause of the issue is that there are some bugs in SharePoint DMS. you need to manually grant the Portal Site Application Pool account with at least Design permission on Distribution Groups list through Central Administration > Operations > Topology and Services > Approve/reject distribution groups (Lists/Distribution%20Groups)

See my previous post for more information:

Fixed: Email enabled list requires admin rights on SharePoint server when using DMS

How do I configure incoming mail with Microsoft SharePoint Directory Management Service (DMS) enabled?

After that, you could enabled E-Mail Distribution List for SharePoint groups successfully.

Then a record created in Distribution Groups list.

image

Approved it.

image

A corresponding Distribution Group was created in AD.

The same with the Contacts created by SharePoint DMS, the Distribution Group was not e-mail enabled. you need to add email address in Exchange Server manually.

Find the Distribution Group in your Exchange Server, checked Automatically update e-mail address based on e-mail address policy if you had a pre-defined policy, or using Add button to add email address manually.

Now, the e-mail enabled SharePoint group was created.

Tried to add a new user in this group.

image 

Fair enough, another error :(.

image

luckily, this time I got some more information on ULS logs:

w3wp.exe (0x0F58)                           0x0F60    Windows SharePoint Services       Topology                          8zrj    High        System.UnauthorizedAccessException: General access denied error       at System.DirectoryServices.Interop.UnsafeNativeMethods.IAds.SetInfo()     at System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry.CommitChanges()     at Microsoft.SharePoint.EmailIntegration.SPEWSADManager.ChangeUsersMembershipInDistributionGroup(String Alias, String[] AddNt4NameList, String[] DeleteNt4NameList, Boolean DeleteAllCurrentMembers)SPEWSADManager::ChangeUsersMembershipInDistributionGroup    
w3wp.exe (0x0F58)                           0x0F60    Windows SharePoint Services       Topology                          8zrk    High        Deleting all members for distribution group SharePointTeamSiteOwners    

Well, permission issue. Double checked Configure Active Directory, all permissions are correctly delegated.

I checked the permission again. I noticed the Modifying the membership of a group should be checked as user should be added to the Distribution Group in AD.

I delegated the permission for both Portal Site Application Pool and Central Administration Site Application Pool account, save it.

image

Finally, the user was successfully added.

image

The user also sync to AD. all done!

Something more:

How Archive E-Mail worked?

image

If you checked the archive mail to a list, the corresponding contact in AD was added to the Distribution Group.

image

If you did not check the archive mail to a list, the corresponding contact in AD was NOT added to the Distribution Group.

image

Because the e-mails sent to Distribution Group were also delivered to the account, the e-mail would be sent to the list and “archived” in the same list.
