In the Cisco Unity 4.x, after public distribution lists are restricted for subscribers, subscribers can still access the restricted list if they create a private distribution list and add the restricted DL to the Private DL

Core Issue

When public distribution lists (DLs) are restricted for subscribers, the subscribers can gain access to the restricted list if they create a private distribution list and add the restricted DL to the private DL. This allows the subscriber to use the restricted list. If any subscriber is allowed to add the public DL to a private DL, that subscriber can send a message even if the class of service (CoS) for the subscriber says cannot send to a public DL.

Resolution

This issue is documented in Cisco bug ID CSCsd21996. Microsoft Exchange has functionality built-in to restrict who is allowed to send to a distribution group. 

For Exchange 2000/2003, complete these steps:

  1. Open Active Directory Users and Computers.
  2. Locate and choose the distribution group.
  3. Click the Exchange General tab.
  4. Under this tab, there is an option for Message restrictions. Apply the restrictions here based on the requirements.
