Hi all;
I was wondering if is there any way by which one would be able to fetch all email Ids which are grouped under some separate parent id.
To make it more clear,Suppose if i have one HR id like "hr@example.com" and all my employees comes under that id.So if i send an email to "hr@example.com" it gets received by all those who are entitled to get that.
Now my requirement is to get all those entitled email ids to whom sent mails are suppose to be received sent by parentid "hr@example.com".If somebody has already done this before by javamail or any other api then please share your
experiences or just some suggestions for by any means it can be achievable.

Thanks;
Ajay Padvi

Why not drop a mail to HR@example.com and ask them who are all the receipient of this mail?

I think you misunderstand. As I understood, HR@example.com is a distribution group or something similar. It isn't a real email box, but emails sent to that email address are automatically sent to all members of that group. Sending an email to HR@example.com would cause this email to be sent to all group members. You can't expect those to reply back; some may not care, some may not understand, and some may even no longer be active.

Probably i was not make able to make a point but again as only those having an access to,can send a mail to group ids..I dont want to drop any mail to hr@example.com.
My parent id is hr@example.com or say any other,and i just want to see who all are the other recipients if somebody sends mail to that id and it got received by us all.

The Question is not related to any organization,If it would have;i could have just ask HR;s or owner of any other groups to give me a list of recipients as per your suggestions before posting it into forum.
Thanks;

Do you mean only specific person can drop a mail to the group-id?

Where is the sender from? Is he inside or outside the example.com?
