You can create Contacts in Active directory. You can then put that contact in a distribution list. Works great.

In active directory, users and computers, create a new Organizational Unit called Contacts. Right click on the OU and choose, new contact. Put in the name criteria and choose next. Click Modify and choose a SMTP address. Put in the users email address.

It will show up in the Global Address LIst tomorrow morning unless you wanted to manually force a Global Catalog Update.

If memory serves... Go into Exchange System Manager and expand Recipients. Click on Offline Address Lists. In the right pane, right click on Defaul Offline Address List and choose Rebuild. Wait a few minutes.
Go into outlook and choose Tools - Send Recieve - Download Address Book. This may take a few minutes to finish.

Exactly! At that point, they will show up in your Global Address List as well as any Distribution list you put them in.

It does run in the background and scours your AD for changes. It may take a little while. I remember waiting 30 minutes once before it started showing up. We have 80 users in AD.
