Mandatory Contact Lists

Mandatory Contact Lists (MCL) allow critical contact information to be pushed to a user's contacts folder, thereby ensuring that the required contacts information (needed in an emergency) is synchronized with a user's mail client and handheld device. These lists can be based on specific contact information or on Active Directory (AD) distribution lists.



Configuration

A Mandatory Contact List (MCL) can be created using an Alternate Contact Source or by using an Exchange Distribution Group to define the source contacts. The contacts are pushed to every user defined in a target list. Open the itrezzoAgent Administrator and navigate to the Mandatory Contact List container located under EPS.

  3. Right-click on the public folder and select 'Make Mandatory Contact List'
  4. Under 'Target: Authorized Recipients', use the select button to pick specific users or AD distribution lists from the Global Address List (GAL)
  5. Click on the 'OK' button
  6. Right click the Alternate Contact Source you just created to make is a Mandatory Contact List





Using AD Groups as both a source and target

  1. Open the itrezzoAgent Administrator and expand the EPS container
  2. Right-click the Mandatory Contacts container and select 'Add MCL (Target is Users Mailbox)'
  3. Create a list name for your MCL. This name will appear as the category header within a user's contact lists. This allows for a quick search for contact information when required.
  4. Create an optional description for the MCL
  5. Under 'Source: Mandatory Contacts', use the select button to pick specific users or Active Directory (AD) distribution groups from the Global Address List (GAL).
    • The Source information is the contact information which is to be distributed within the MCL
  6. Under 'Target: Authorized Recipients', use the select button to pick specific users or Active Directory (AD) distribution lists from the Global Address List (GAL)
    • The Target information is the contact information for those that are to receive the MCL
  7. The administrator may choose to view the membership of the source and target to verify if the contact information in the MCL is being appropriated to the correct users. This can be done by selecting the 'Members' button within the MCL properties.
  8. Select the 'OK' button



The next time EPS runs, the MCL you have created will be pushed to the target recipients.

Note: Only itrezzo licensed users will receive the Mandatory Contact Lists
