here are the steps I took in AD on our Exchange Server:
1. I Created a Contact that contains the external email address
2. I Created a DL that has the newly created Contact as a member. I also put in an internal email address to see if that works.

When I send an email using the DL i get the following error.
The following recipient(s) cannot be reached:

      Men's Ministry External Email Address on 11/2/2006 10:05 AM
            The e-mail address could not be found.  Perhaps the recipient moved to a different e-mail organization, or there was a mistake in the address.  Check the address and try again.
            <david.CBCCROSS.ORG #5.1.0>

I just noticed that the contact I created doesn't show up in any address book and I created it several days ago. The DL does but the contact doesn't
HELP PLEASE!!

You should probably check Exchange advanced setting on the contact,
and check that "Hide from Exchange address list" has not been selected.

What happens if you send the email directly to the contact,
and not through the DL ?
