I want to create a distribution list for contacts. I've read in other groups that all you have to do is create a contact in AD and place them in a distribution list. So this is exactly what I did but when I tried sending a test message it did not reach the contacts. When I try to send a message to the individual contact it works fine. What am I missing? Also is it possible to hide the GAL and allow certain address lists to show up in the address book. P.S.
