Configure an ACM mail-enabled group

While ACM doesn't have a way to create a mailing list based on a group membership directly, it is possible to have a mail-enabled Active Directory group based on an ACM group.

First, you need to make your ACM group available for use as an ADS security group:

  1. Go to Access Control Management (ACM).
  2. Select or create an ACM group. For help, see Create, edit, or delete Access Control Management (ACM) groups.
  3. On the "Group" page, under "Features", check Active Directory Services.

    This will create an Active Directory security group that contains the same members as your ACM group. ACM will automatically generate an ADS group name based on the group name you specified with an iu-entlmt- prefix added. Membership changes that you make to your ACM group will be automatically reflected in the associated ADS group. This includes removing people from the group if they leave the university or are not compliant with the relevant data use tutorials.

Once you have an ADS group associated with your ACM group, you will need to work with your IT Pro to have it mail-enabled and determine an alias for it or a display name for the Global Address List (GAL). To find the ADS group name, so you can share it with your IT Pro, look under the "Features" section when you edit your ACM group.
