Exchange Servers Setup >> A Mail list called "everyone"

Have migrated from 5.5 to Ex2003 on Win2003.

The old set-up had a mail group called "everyone" which they could mail
to.

They can no-longer use the term "everyone" as a mail list. When they try
and create a group by this name it says that it already exists.


OK, now all object are held in AD, so I can see why it will not let you
use "everyone" as a mail name since it is a group in Windows.

But why can you not use it in outlook to send to all users?

Exchange Servers Setup >> A Mail list called "everyone" Because it's a reserved name as you've discovered. Just create a new list
called "All Users" or something similar.
