Hiding Distribution Lists from Address Book....

I want to hide a distribution list from showing up in the global address book - BUT, when I follow the 'step by step' instructions to do this by checking the "Hide from address book" box in the Advanced tab, the address becomes completely unusable (can not send messages to it - as if does not exist!) - even if you explicitly enter the address in the 'To' box of a message. Can someone tell me how to hide a DL but still be able to use it...??

If you hide a DL you are hiding from the Exchange Global Address list.  You could still reach the DL by alternative means, such as using the SMTP address, if one has been assigned to the DL.

I am having the same problem...I hide a GDL and I can't sent to it even if I type out the entire address.  Any ideas?  I would also like to be able to hide all my GDL's from the GAL but still have them show up in the perspective containers in the address book view.
