We recently upgraded from Exchange 5.5 to 2003 (running on Win2k3).

I created a Universal Distribution group in AD.  In Exchange Admin the group shows up in the preview of "All Groups" under "All Address Lists" and it also shows up under the preview of "Default Global Address List" under "All Global Address Lists", but when I go to actually use the DL in Outlook it does not show up under "Show Names from: Global Addess List" - it does show up under "Show Names from: All Groups".  All distribution lists created prior to the upgrade show under "Show Names from: Global Addess List".  What am I not doing to show the new DL's in the GAL.

This is not a hugh problem, but our users would never think to change the "show Names From:" to the "All Groups".

You must be using outlook 2003. Go into tools..account settings..and choose view or change existing email. on the screen where it has the server name and use name..uncheck the cache mode checkbox..i hate the little buger..

That must have been it.  I took a couple days off. Either the cache was updated or this fixed the problem.  Thanks - I guess I should have looked at other user's outlook.
