Exchange 2013/2016: How to use the groups feature (mailing lists)

Step 1: Setup via the Web Control Panel

First log in to your Customer account.

Then select your Exchange service by clicking on it in the left-hand column under "Exchange".

Click on the "Groups" tab, and then "Create a contact group" on the right.

Step 2: Setup via the Web Control Panel

A new window will open. Please enter the following information:

"Email address": the email address that will send messages to the mailing list. Please note: you cannot enter an existing email address.

"Name of group": the display name that appears in your Web Control Panel and in OVH webmail.

"Max size incoming": you can specify the size of attachments for incoming and outgoing emails.

"Manage subscribers": specifies the security level of access to the group. Open: anyone can subscribe to the group. Moderate: an administrator validates the subscription. Closed: the administrator subscribes group members to the list. The same applies for "Manage un-subscribers"

"Hide in Outlook": if this box is ticked, the group address will not appear in the Exchange service list of addresses.

"Authentication required": if this box is ticked, only group members will be able to send a message using the group address.

Click on "Next" to continue.
