Is there any way to set up an all<_at_>domain.com email address so that it sends emails to an Active Directory group?

I have found mailing lists, but I have to update each persons email manually within the list and I cannot add a group of users.

The problem will be when somebody leaves the company or when somebody new starts etc. I will have to update the user account in Active Directory AND remember to update their email in the correct mailing lists in Kerio.

I read in another post that they said to create a user account, and have it forward to a group email address which will then forward the email to users in the group. However, this means more licences because of the extra user accounts I need right?

Is there any other/better way to do this without having to buy more licences?

This might work for you:

Create an alias that delivers to a public folder rather than to a mailbox. Share that folder with whomever you need to.

You can send an email to a group mapped from AD directly. Just import group from AD and assign an email address.

When I try this and try to send an email it tells me that the email address does not exist.
However it works when I use the same email address for a mailing list.

I found out that I had to change the users accounts to Active Directory accounts in Kerio (I had them set up as Kerio accounts with AD authentication).

Now my problem is that any external user can email all<_at_>domain.com. Is there any way to stop this? There is a setting on the group to only allow users in the group to receive messages from the same domain, but will this prevent users in the group from receiving external emails?

Yes, there are ways to make it private. One is a mailing list (as you already know). Another is to use a Contact Group (nee Distribution List) and share it - perhaps in Public Folders to make it easier. Both are annoying to update.

Yet another way is to use a domain limited group with one user in it. That user forwards to whomever you want. That consumes a license and still requires you to update that forwarding as needed. A post at http://forums.kerio.com/mv/msg/13947/65142/#msg_65142 suggests forwarding to a randomly named group (your AD group) instead. It could also forward to a randomly name alias which delivers to a Public Folder.

None of these are ideal.
