Assign a Moderator to a Distribution Group

Message moderation requires incoming messages to be reviewed by one or more moderators before delivery. Moderators can apply or reject incoming messages.

In this scenario, I have a distribution group which needs to be had a Moderator.

Open Microsoft Exchange Server management Console and go to

Microsoft Exchange On-Premises>

Recipient Configuration>

Distribution Group>

and choose your distribution group that you want customize and right click on it and open properties and click Mail Flow Setting

Choose Message Moderations


Enable “Messages sent to this group have to be approved by a moderator” check box


You can add a user or users who will be moderator for this distribution group.

You can also add a user or user who don’t require message approval


Besides, Notification area is the most important part of this feature because do you want to notify them when their messages aren’t approved?
