Automated in what way, e.g. when new mailboxes are created.

I take it you are talking about personal distribution lists

I have only used Outlook 97 and Outlook 2000, so I am not sure about 98(is there really and Outlook 98?).

If by automated you simply meant a distribution list(which automates mailing) here is how in 95 and 2000, see if one is available.

In Outlook 2000, click;
|FILE| > |NEW| > |Distribution List|

If 98 doesn't have the availability, as 97 didn't, you have to go into the Personal Address Book, and create a distribution list there.  Then, when you click the TO within an e-mail, change the "Show Names from the: " to Personal Address Book(Usually this is Contacts")

I hope this is in the ball park.  If not, please elaborate.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

There are some third-party tools that can automatically build and maintain DLs, based on various queries to the GAL. See http://www.slipstick.com/contacts/dl.htm.
