Zimbra auto-provisioining and dynamic distribution groups

This article explains how to configure auto-provisioining, if Zimbra is configured to use external LDAP (Active Directory), and then move the newly created users to dynamic DL group/s  
More information on how to configure Zimbra with AD can be found: [here], and for auto-provisioning [here]'

Solution
