    Hi @Андрей Михалевский

    What's your Exchange server version? Do you want to use powershell to search for messages with attachment sent from a distribution group?

    Generally we could use search-mailbox command to search mailbox and copy the results to a specified target mailbox.

    -SearchQuery "from:XXX"

    However, for the attachment, I'm afraid you can only search for a specific atttachment, but cannot filter mails with attachments.


    In Exchange online, has an filter HasAttachment in New-ComplianceSearch


    Below is a related thread discussed about the similar issue: use Search-Mailbox to find messages with attachments
