In my server 2003 / exchange 2003 environment I need to create a distribution list that my users can use to send e-mails to a group of people that are set up with g-mail accounts. I know how to create a distribution list for users that reside in my domain by right clicking on the user OU and choose group then distribution list etc.  However when I do this and try to add the g-mail users it can't find them to add to my list. I tried adding the g-mail users as contacts with SMTP addresses but even after doing so I still can't add them to a distribution list on my server. I want my users to be able to open outlook click on the "To:" button then choose the distribution list with the gmail accounts and send them all e-mails. Is there a way to create distribution lists on a server that consist of e-mail accounts from gmail?

This is actually quite simple.

Step 1. Log on to your domain controller and open Active Directory Users and Computers.
Step 2. In the user group right click and select New, Contact.
Step 3. Fill out the persons information and click Next.
Step 4. Make sure the “Create an Exchange e-mail address” box is checked. Click the “Modify” button and choose SMTP address, put the persons external email address in the blank. Click ok.Click Next.
Step 5. Click Finish.
Step 6. Right click on the new contact and select “Add to group”. Enter the name of the group you want to add it to and click “Check Names”. Click Ok.

Hope this helps!
