Cannot see new global distribution list in Outlook 2003

When I set up a new distribution list in Active Directory on a Windows 2000 server, the new list does not show up for several hours in the Global Address List in Outlook 2003.  This was never a problem before Outlook 2003.

However, even though the new dist. list doesn't display, we can send mail to that list by typing the entire e-mail address into the "To:" field.

Is there a solution to the display (or not displaying) problem?
