Hello,

I want to deny access to a folder containing data but cannot seem to add a
distribution group to the list in the Security window. This is Windows
2003. When I click add and then the Group name I get a message, Group
cannot not found. I can, however, add individual users then deny them 'List
Folder Contents' rights.

Thanks for any help.

God Bless,

Mark A. Sam

You can't use a distribution group for this purpose - that's for e-mail. You
can use a security group, even if it's a mail-enabled security group (e.g.,
in Exchange Server).

NB: You've posted this in an XP newsgroup - for server questions, best to
post in microsoft.public.windows.server.*
