Users cannot view members of the distribution list

The problem I have is that none of our users can view the membership list of any of the distribution lists, it just show it as blank.  Users can send emails to the distribution list and they arrive correctly.  

I have checked the properties for all the distribution lists and "hide from address book" & "hide membership from address book" are not not ticked.  I have on a couple of the distribution lists ticked them, applied them, unticked them and applied them.  The problem is still there.  

The stickler is that if I log in as the administrator and check properties via outlook, it shows all the members ok.  Therefore I think it is something to do with permissions.

The setup is as follows: Exchange 5.5 SP4 running on a NT4 SP6a server.  The clients are running either NT or 2000 with Office 2000 or XP.

Any help is appreciated.
