In the AD Users and Computers console. there should be a setting in the properties of the distribution list "allow messages from" - set the user there

You may need to create a Query Based Distribution Group (This will query the OU and give the list about avilable user in perticular OU)

For Exchange 2003

For Exchange 2007

And after creating the OU ,go to the properties and give the send rights to perticular user on the created OU

Hope this helps.

Nevermind, I was getting way to deep into this...it's as simple as creating a distro list in outlook...select everyone from the GAL and add them. This way one can send to everyone and only replies will come back to the sender.

True, but the work around fits the question as well.
