A name in the distribution list can't be resolved

There is an unresolved entry in a distribution list.  When I click the distribution list.  There is a message popping up as below:

A name in the distribution list can't be resolved.  To send a  message to this distribution list, remove the member marked "Unresolved entry"

I have the following questions:
1. Is this distribution list usable now?
2. Will this "Unresolved entry" disable the distribution list?
3. Will it be any problem if I remove this "Unresolved entry" from the distribution list.
4. What causes this problem?

Thank you for your kind attention.

Best regards,

The list is probably still usable. However you should remove the unresolved entry - it shouldn't cause any problems. Various causes for the error - an account, contact or other item wasn't removed correctly, or was removed from one of the other servers and the information hasn't replicated back correctly.
