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.

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.
