Q

Can I display a distribution list name without showing member names?

Find out if it is possible to display the name of an Exchange public folder distribution list without displaying the names of its members.

I don't want to expand the Exchange Server public folder distribution list. Is there a way to display only the name of the distribution list and not the names of its members?

Not that I'm aware of. I'd recommend you use Global Address List (GAL)-based distribution lists and groups if that's

what you're trying to achieve.

Yes, you can actually do this by using query based distribution groups, either by Exchange Management Console (EMC) or Exchange Management Shell (EMS).
