We are  using Exchange 2010 with Outlook 2011.  We have a public folder setup to hold contacts.  When we subscribe to the  public folder we see individual contacts but not groups.  I thought distribution groups in public folders was supported in Outlook 2011.

- The normal distribution group is visible and available for use from Outlook 2011 (mac) correct?

Thanks.  I found out from MS that Contact groups are not supported when you are using an Exchange account.  They are only available in personal contacts.
