I followed the online documentation on how to create a PDL and added three subscribers. When I log into vmail and go to send a message to the extension I get a reponse that "This recipients email address does not exist. If this recipeint is new, wait a few minutes and try again."

i have waited 20 minutes. Is there anything else I need to do or do I just need to wait longer?

Have you gone thru first time enrollment? Does the subscriber have a recorded name. Just a thought.

Thanks. When you say 1st time enrollemnt, you mean for the subscribers (members) of the DL correct? They have been around for a while so they are fine.

I see the DL created now in my AD container. I guess my question is do I wait for Windows to fill complete the mailbox creation, etc. or do I go ahead and do it. Also, once it is created is it best to add new members via AD or Unity?

yes the members of the dl. I always do my dls in ad then import (members also) because that is our security policy here. you don't have to do it that way.

it probably took so long because of ad replication

Thanks! I appreciate your help with this. I will wait a few hours to see if it updates correctly.

Last thing- I created a DL called "IT Test" and in AD it says "IT Test05af795c" is this normal ,and can I change it?

One more thing if I remember right when you create a DL in AD and add members too it they do not have to be unity subscribers.

Unity when you want to add to DL I think it will only show subscibers and not everyone in AD.

That may be good or bad, something to test.
