The SBS console has an option to create a distribution group. The link is grayed out. It is not recommended to create the group via the Exchange console.


1. Fix registry setting change:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ SmallBusinessServer \ Components
Add / change the DWord value "Messaging" with a value of "1".

2. Re-run the Add Group wizard and verify works.
