Win 2003 Server I have a boardcast list in my domain on AD. When a person send an email to the Distribution group everyone within that distribution list receives it. I want to create permissions so that this distribution can be screned incase someone sends and email before it is sent to the entire list. So, I send and email to broadcast@abc.com which goes to user@abc.com(just the one person). User@abc.com checks the email and sends it to boradcast@abc.com which goes to everyone on this list. Is there any solution that you can think of. Cus nothing comes to my mind.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You do not say what mail system you are using. Is this Exchange? If so what version and service pack level? You can set a restriction on who can send to the DL in Exchange. How to do this depends on the version. You restrict all users from sending except the approved users. This is what we had to do to prevent company spamming from internal email users. Trust me when they get the bounce back that they do not have permission to send to the DL they will call your help desk and the help desk will refer them to the approved sender. They can then send the email to the approved sender for review. You could also send out an informational email first letting everyone know who to send their email to for approval. I know of no automated way to do this process. It has been working well for us for 4 years this way.

Thanks Technochic, this answer helped. I snooped around.
Under AD> Properties of the Broadcast List > Exchange General Tab > Message Restrictions > Select Only From> Add Users to the list.
And you can Add the user who can screen it before it is re-sent out.

If user who is not permited tries to send and email to this Broadcast group you get a ‘You do not have permission to send to this recipient. For assistance, contact your system administrator’ Email back from the System Administrator.

Which brings me to my next question, how can I change this message so that a user knows what is happning and why permission to send an email was denied.

    If I am understanding you correctly you want all members of a specific broadcast group to be able to send an email to this group so all members receive it at the sametime. However you want any email sent to this distribution group to be proof read before it reaches all the members, In other words, John, Jane, Larry, Tom, Lisa, Bill, & Rob are all members of this broadcast group. Lets say Rob is the proof reader. When one of the members send an email to the broadcast group you want that email to go to Rob only. Once Rob proof reads it you want Rob to release it so all members receive it. Is this correct?

    Actually, I would like to decide if it can go out to the rest of the users too. If I don't like I deny sending it out and discard it.
