WebinarUpcoming Webinar: Know What’s Changed – with NEW Server Configuration Monitor

Change management in IT is critical. But, even with a good change management process, changes are too often not correctly tracked, if at all. The configuration of your servers and applications is a key factor in their performance, availability, and security. Many incidents can be tracked back to an authorized (and sometimes unauthorized) configuration change, whether to a system file, configuration file, or Windows® Registry entry. Join SolarWinds VP of product management Brandon Shopp to discover how the new SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor is designed to help you.

This article outlines the default setting within Exchange 2007/2010 for newly created distribution lists, that requires sender authentication to be set to false, before you can use the new group within SAM for alerting.


  • All SAM versions
  • MS Exchange 2007 and 2010


From the EMS, this can be changed via this line:
Set-DistributionGroup -NewlyCreatedDistro -RequireSenderAuthenticationEnabled $false
or from the Distribution Group properties > Mail Flow Settings tab, message delivery restrictions > deselect Require All Senders > Apply.
