Feature Request -Mailbox selection by OU or distibution list

Post by » May 21, 2018 3:47 pm


It will be fine to be able to select which mailbox are backup by AD OU (if AD Connect is used), or distribution list

One of my customer want to backup mailbox from people who are permanent employees (mailbox from employees how works for 1 or 2 month only are not backup up)

Each time there is a new permanent employee, or one is leaving the company, we must modify manually the backup job (when they think to inform us)

If will be fine to say VBO : "backup all mailbox belong to this AD OU, or belong to these distribution list", as we are sure that the distribution list are update

I think that I was not the only one to ask this

Hey Jean-Luc,

First: Welcome to the forums!
Second: In version 2 (in beta now, can be requested through your SE) you will have the possibility to select based on O365 groups, mail-enabled distribution list (and dynamic distribution lists) and mail-enabled security groups

Hope it helps
