we use the mail-function of the bureaucracy-plugin to send mails to various users. The user management isn’t done by DokuWiki, we use the authad-plugin to fetch users and groups from our Active Directory. In the bureaucracy form we define a mailadress from an Exchange group as recipient, and all users in the group receive the mail. This works very well. So far, so good.
The only problem we experience is, when users are not directly in the defined group itself, but in a sub-group which is a member of the defined group. In this case, they don’t receive the mail. But sending a mail from Outlook to this group works as expected, and also a member of an sub-Groups receives the mail.
We are not sure where to find the cause of this behaviour; if it comes from DokuWiki (because the default user manager doesn’t have sub-groups), PHPMailer, Active Directory, the Exchange server or from whatever. Our server Administrator told us that there are no configuration options he has done to prevent what we want to do.
Maybe someone has experience with this or a clue where to search?
