Creating E-mail groups visible to the internet

Hello everyone,

I have Exchange 2007 and would like to know if there is an easy way to create a group account that is visible to the internet.
Ex: I want to create a support group that has a few members with email address i can create the group easily enough but this is then only visible to the internal exchange network.

Any help would be appreciated

When you say visble do you mean that you cannot send to the newly created group from the Internet? Can you send to any addresses from the Internet that use addresses?

What error are you recieving?

Hi Mass2612,

I can send E-mail to user mailboxes from the internet, just not a group account - which is fine for internal groups but I need some groups like support to be able to receive E-mail from the internet.

Do you recieve an error?

I am currently running exchange as a test server, I cannot switch it to the live connection until after hours. I will run some further tests tonight and see how it goes - thanks for your quick response :)
