You cannot create an Exchange 2000 address list based on OU. The reason for this is the filter is looking for an attribute, an organizational unit is not an attribute to the user. The only workaround is to create a group within each OU, then add all users in that OU to that group and create the address list filtering that group. This will work since group membership is an attribute.
I.E. - OU1 - create a group called OU1, add all users in OU

Hmm, don't know what happened there, but like i was saying, if you have an OU named OU1, just create a group within that OU, add all users in that OU to that group, then create a filter for address lists based upon group membership.

Did i explain that clearly enough?
And yes this is by design, this is the workaround.

Hope this helps.
