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.
