Create Dynamic Distribution Groups in Exchange Labs

What better way to start a blog entry than to use someone else’s fine words:

"Unlike regular Exchange Labs distribution groups that contain a defined set of members, the membership list for a dynamic distribution group is calculated every time that a message is sent to the group. This calculation is based on the filters and conditions that you define. When an e-mail message is sent to a dynamic distribution group, it is delivered to all recipients in the organization that match the criteria defined for that dynamic distribution group."

I just did a screencast of me creating a Dynamic Distribution Group ion my Exchange Labs service in PowerShell.  Dynamic Distribution groups can save a lot of time for administrators in that in certain scenarios, and with smart use of mailbox attributes to store information about users and base your group membership on, you can have ‘set it and forget it’ groups that manage themselves.
