I have added some Dynamic Distribution Group in our Exchange 2007 machine.
When I go into outlook, click TO and look thru the GAL, I do not see the DDG that I made.

I read over some other issues on here and none where directly the same as this.

I did verify the HIDE FROM GLOBAL ADDRESS LIST checkbox is NOT checked.

Can anyone tell me why they dont show?

Check Hide from GAL and apply.  Then Uncheck hide from GAL and apply.

Don't know why, but this has worked for me in the past in similar situations.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
