I have a discussion group set up as an alias so that new messages coming in to the designated email address are received in the discussion group.
I have several users set up as members of the discussion group.
The oddity I see is that when an email is received by the discussion group from outside, the person sending the email (already a partner) is automatically added as a follower of the discussion group.
I don't want the customer to be added to the discussion group. I only want the users/employees to be members of the discussion group.
I might be using the Discussion group incorrectly.
Is there a way to prevent the customer from being automatically added as a follower of the discussion group?
I think I have answered my own question on this: The discussion group was not the correct tool to use for this job. Essentially I was attempting to use a Discussion Group as a collective incoming mail box. The Discission Group is like a mailing list, one posts to it so that all followers of the Discussion Group can be informed of that piece of information, and by posting to it one sort of automatically subscribes to the mailing list/discussion group as well (which is only fair!). So the answer to my specific question is that there isn't a way that I have found to prevent someone from being added to the discussion group, but it was not the correct tool for the job anyway.
