User restrictions
We created a group that include info all user email address for easy access. Before this all users can use that group to send an email but now we need it to be restricted meaning that only admin group can see that group from the listed group or using that group to send an email. The problem is, other users still can send an email to that group even though they can't see it in the listed group. Can anyone help me how to block that? Thanks

    To restrict users from sending mail to a group follow these steps 1. From the Domino Administrator, click the People & Groups tab, expand the Domino Directory that contains the group you want to restrict access to, and select the Groups view. 2. Right-click the Group document to manage and choose Document Properties. 3. Select the Security tab (the Key). 4. Deselect the All readers and above checkbox to enable editing of the readers list. 5. To enable a user to send mail to the group, select the user's name in the list. 6. To provide access to users not listed, click the Person icon to the right, add the name in the Select Names dialog box, and click OK. The user's name appears at the bottom of the list with a check next to it. 7. Deselect the names of users you want to prevent from sending mail to the group, including the Anonymous entry. 8. Close the Document Properties dialog box.
