Can't use the Exchange admin center to remove members from a distribution group that has more than 3,000 members

Applies to: Exchange OnlineExchange Server 2013 EnterpriseExchange Server 2013 Standard Edition

PROBLEM


When you view a distribution group in the Exchange admin center, not all members are listed if that distribution group contains a large number of members. The Exchange admin center can display up to 3,000 members per distribution group. .

If a distribution group contains more than 3,000 members, you can't use the Exchange admin center to remove members who aren't listed.

WORKAROUND


Use the Remove-DistributionGroupMember cmdlet instead of the Exchange admin center to remove members from a distribution group.

For example, to remove roger@contoso.com from a distribution group that's named Customer Service, follow these steps:
  1. Do one of the following:
  2. Run the following command:
    Remove-DistributionGroupMember -Identity "Customer Service" -Member roger@contoso.com
