I'm looking for replacing publics folders (exchange) with MOSS. But i have a problem with the contacts. I was able to retrieve and use contacts in Outlook, but i couldn't do it for the distribution lists.

After few searches, i found an article saying it's not possible as it... and i have to use the entering mails to do it. So, i activate it, but didn't find where and how i have to use the distribution list...

I'm not following what you are trying to do. Are you trying to set SharePoint permissions with distribution lists? Cause that doesn't work they need to be security groups. Just sending out an email you can email a distribution list but to give permissions it will need to be a security group

As i can create and use a contacts list in SharePoint, i'ld to have a list with distribution lists. In Exchange publics folders, when you create a contact folder, you can create in it contacts or distributions lists with contacts. I just want the same thing with SharePoint, but i don't how to do this.

Try to download this driver http://www.nvidia.com/object/geforce_notebook_win7_186.03_whql.html, install on Windows, reboot your Macbook. Then you'll be able to find your screen in the nvidia center or in the windows screen parameters.

Ok so you will either have to add the contacts in those public folders as contact objects in AD and then add them to a email enabled AD group (time consuming if you have alot) or you will probably want to look into Directory Management Service for WSS 3.0 heres the link http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc263260.aspx
