Exchange 2003 Distribution List properties - Notes field

I am creating some query-base distribution lists within Exchange 2003. When you browse to the address book via Outlook 2003 you can look at the properties of that list. On the General Tab of the distibution list properties there is a section called "notes", but its all greyed out. I was hoping to be able to add a description of the list so what users would be able to better understand who or what that particular distribution list included.

I can't seem to find a place with AD Users & Computers to do this. Am I missing something?

No you are not.  They didn't supply a section in Active Directory Users and computers to do this.  The attribute responsible for this is the "info" attribute.  Unfortunately there is no easy way of editing this without scripting or using ADSIedit.

I've used ADSIedit and added some text to the info attribute but its not showing up when I look at the properties in Outlook 2003.

I did the change from a workstation with domain admin rights. Should I have run ADSIedit from the exchange server?

Mine seems to work.  It should just show up in the General TAB of the Query based distribute list properties.

Is it working now, there might have been some replication delays.
