*******Basically this********
To: Group A
From:  Sender

Hi,
Just go ahead, create the Distribution Group, and in permission (Security) only give the Boss permisssions to expand/read the group members
And if you want to restrict anyone to send to that group, also make sure on GEneral Tab, you only give the boss's ID as who can send to the group.
Let me know if oyu need further help
Thanks
Nitin

This is going to members outside of our domain.  How will the envelope read once it has been received by the other party????????

Hi,
The External user will only see Group Name and not the users inside....
Try this with creating a temp group and put your external ids like (yahoo/htomail/gmail etc) and send and see

I just did a small test with 2 internal people and I saw their names when it was sent to me.   I set the permissions for him to be the owner of the group and then there is an anonomyous account and default account.  Should I delete both of those settings?

The Default permission based value keeps coming up when I delete it and hit apply.  
I tried another test and still the same.

What are you trying to do....
See goto Group Properties --> Security --> Give the Users of Group Deny permissions

I go into his contacts right click on the group and the click properties.  Under the permissions tab I deleted the anonomyous account and default account.  I think this has to be set up as a distribution list instead of a folder with contacts right?

Would you be able to provide me a step by step?  His contact list is corrupted and that's the reason he did it in folders.  I created a distribution list for him, but since it resides in the contact folder he cannot get to it.  
I plan on repairing it, just not at this moment.  I do appreciate all of your help Nitin!
