Hi there i have been an  muppet and still probably am being! I added some distibution groups in Exchange console but they did not appear on the contact lists. I then remembered the best way to add them is via the SBS console so cleverly deleted them from exchange and tried to add them in the SBS console. Now all i get is name already exists?

The groups were more than likely added OK, its just that the Update Service has not updated the GAL yet - give it time !

Is there anyway to give them a kick as there is a guy annoying me beyond belief that he has got to email three people individually!

You may have to update the msSBSCreationState  in AD this is an issue I had seen before I knew there was a link out there Look At this  and that should clear it up for you.

Deleting an recreating will take longer and is completely unneccessary. Please follow the first link in louisreeves posting. You'll find a link there to download Windows SBS 2008 Active Directory Converter tool. It will update the group with the necessary attribute to display in the SBS Console. It's very quick and very easy to do this. And in the future it you do create any other groups out of SBS Console you can move them in very easily. It also can update user accounts too.
