Distribution Lists and Delivery Restrictions

Keep in mind two points.

1.  Changes made to dl's on one server DO need to replicate to the rest.

2. Any permission changes may take up 120 minutes to take effect due to
caching of information store by the directory, and the default refresh
interval of 120 minutes.

See this KB article for instructions on how to modify the refresh time.  You
really shouldn't experience any negative outcome even by setting the value
to 1 minute.

1. Delivery Restrictions on Distribution List Help??

We have a Distribution List called "All Employees", which as it's namesake
suggests, posts to everyone.  It is a necessary group for us, however at
times it has been abused.

Question:  Is there any way to set up this group so that A) when an employee
posts a message to All Employees, it is forwarded/sent to the IS department
FIRST so that we may review it before it gets out to the troops and then
release it or deny it?  And if not, then is the only solution to B) give
only the IS Dept and Administration the permissions to this group, and not
everyone else?  That is not what we prefer, as there are times when others
need it.  Solution A is much preferable.  Any help would very much be
appreciated and thanks!
