Create mail contacts for the people outside of the AD domain.  These are just email addresses in the global address list that point to external mail users.
Then you can make your mailing group and include the mail contacts in it.

You would need to greate a local distribution group in Exchange for the AD people and one  in your email client that would include the distribution group and the external people. Send the email from your email client.

you can create in the ad one contact for each e.mail and assign to it  its e.mail address

for example
contactalibaba with smtp e.mail abc@alibaba.com
contactzulu with smtp e.mail xyz@zulu.com
contactiii with smtp e.mail tc@iii.com

the you have to create a distribution group
and make the cotnacts  that you have created member of this distribution groups

nothibng else

You can create contacts on Active Directory. In our company we have many email address that we send out information to that is not in our domain. So what i do is create a distribution group and then create contacts with there name. When i finish the contact, i open it to edit the information and in the Email box I put there email and in Member of I put them to be a member of the distribution group. I hope im being clear with my explanation.

Create the distribution group.
Create the contacts with there first and last name if you want.
Open the contact after it was created and in the email box, put in the email address.
Add the contact to the distribution group.

It's a pain for me because I have 60 external email address so I use a script to create the contacts for me.
