I had a previous problems trying to create Query-Based Distribution Groups.  I have been able to get most of the groups working properly, however one particular group that I would like to create will not work.  I am trying to create a Query-Based Distribution Group for all my network users.  I set the values for User, Member of, Is (exactly), Domain Users.  However when I test this, I get a message that No Items Match the Current Search.  Could someone please tell me if the "Domain Users" Group can be used in Query's, and if so, how can I properly perform this query.

This explains how to use Query-based distribution groups:

http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Query_Based_Distribution_Groups.html

If you'd like a distribution group for everyone, on the New Object - Query Based Distribution page (after you've given it a name)

For Apply filter to recipients in and below, select the forest level, and then check the box "Users with Exchange Mailboxes"

That should give you a distribution group for all users in your org with an exchange mailbox.
