Have never really thought about this until a user had a problem.  Can a "/" be used in naming an Outlook contact distribution group?  Once I renamed the group and used a "-" we were able to send the message out the distribution group with no problems.  If you are allowed to use the "/" in the distribution group name, anyone know a reason why this fails until the group is renamed?

Hello frevere,

"/" is triggers something in an email client, so it is barred.  Gmail also blocks that character in user names and group names.

Hope this helps!
