Need some help with creating a distribution list

Hello all-

I am having some issues in creating an e-mail distribution list in AD. (server 2003)

Here is the deal:

There are 2 different OU's, Collections and Credit.

I need to add the credit department to the collections distribution list while keeping the credit e-mails seperate from the collections department.

I tried creating a query-based list that queried the credit department people and stuck it in the collections OU. That did not work. When I e-mail collections the credit people do not receive the e-mail. The weird thing is that I can e-mail the distribution list that I created to query the credit department and they get the e-mail.

I'm guessing I'm either doing something wrong or there is a checkbox that I missed, does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

What about creating a credit distro/group
Then nest that inside of the collections group.
Then all emails going to collections group would also go to the credit group.  There would still be a credit group where people could send email too that would be separate from the collections distro/group.
Thanks
Mike

That is what I did. The group I made is called Credit Department Collectors. It is a query based group that pulls the names from the credit group.

ok I haven't tested with a query based group but it does work with global groups for instance

I just tried creating a global distribution group. I put myself as one of the members of that dist group, put it in collections and sent an e-mail.

still nothing.
