exchange 2003, server 2003 - Distribution Group

you know how in AD when you create a new users with an exchange account after awhile the email section under general and the email address tab auto population with the exchange information and X400 info.

Why is it when I create a new Group Distribution list and I click yes to have it create a exchange alias all that information I mention above doesn't self populate. I have to go and past in the ALIAS and the full Email information in the email section on the general tab.

I guess the question I have is this normal or is it suppose to auto populate ??

Simple display name under the Advanced tab did not auto-populate.  You may have a problem

Is there anything simple to check out why it might not be auto populating ?

Simple, no, but you can try the trusty reboot and see if anything changes.  if not prepare to do some digging.

Much as i want to reboot the exchange server I can't, selecting universal distro groups wouldn't cause it not to create right would it?

I am letting them sit for 24 hours, some of the groups information is starting to populate with exchange info, Maybe I need to give them time to replicate
