Does anyone know if there is an Event ID generated when someone does a "send as" from a DL? If so, can you advise of event ID (Exchange 2003/2007)

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

You cannot do a “send as” FROM a DL. A DL is not a person or mailbox, it is a list of people who will RECEIVE the message when you send it. Can you provide a few more details please?

    Yes I understand the concept of a DL. You can actualy set up permissions to have Send As rights From a DL. I was an exchange admin for 5.5 and the steps for 5.5 are below. I have moved into Compliance now and do not know the steps for 2000/2007, however our organization has multiple DL's that have been permissioned to allow individauls to Send As. Compliance is wanting Send As permissions to be monitored using event logging to reduce any potentional security risk. However, I have not been successful to date in finding the event ID, if any, that is generated when a user performs the send as. If anyone knows the event ID, it would be much appreciated. To grant Send As rights for a distribution list, follow these steps: In Exchange Server Administrator program, click Options on the Tools menu. Click the Permissions tab, and then click to select the Show Permissions Page for all objects check box. In the Administrator program, open the properties for a distribution list. Click the Permissions tab. Add the Microsoft Windows NT account or group, and then change the role to "Send As". Click OK to close properties. Stop and restart the Information Store service.

    Exchange 2000/2007 administration are both quite different. Ex2000 allowed you to do administrative tasks through Active Directory because the tasks were integrated with AD. Exchange 2007 changed that back to the Exchange Management Console instead of AD and many tasks are no longer available through AD. You can still do things in AD but they may not get the results intended. For instance if you create a new user in AD instead of the Echange Management Console the user will not be able to access their account in OWA. New users should not be created in AD. The steps you outline below are not available in Exchange 2007, I do not know about 2000, we are no longer using that product and I never was asked to perform that task. I became an Exchange Admin with Exchange 2000 and to my knowledge doing a "send as" for a DL was not an option. We set up resources instead for that kind of purpose and allowed people to "send as" the resource, but never a DL.
