Can you create an address list in Exchange 2007 that holds only mail contacts?

Exchange 2007
When I go through the EMC wizard to create a new address list I can't get 'mail contacts' to show up. Looks like it would only see mail users. How do the rest of you fine people deal with sending mail to external contacts? It would be nice to create an address list containing these mail contacts and then setting permissions on the list so that only logistics for example would only be able to open it in their Outlook clients.
Thanks,
BW

I have used EMC wizard , but can you use public folders to create these contacts and set permissions on it.

Thanks mboppe. Few questions
1. Where would you create the public folder? On the Exchange server? Then specified users can view them in Outlook? Is there a way to import say 50 to 100 mail contacts?

Thanks a lot,
BW

According to a technet article regarding setting up Address Lists:
"Contacts with external e-mail addresses   Select this check box if you want the address list to apply to contacts that have external e-mail addresses. Contacts that have external e-mail accounts don't have user domain accounts in Active Directory, but the external e-mail address is available in the GAL.
"
When I select this option when setting up an address list, why does nothing show up in the preview? This is my main question

Thanks,
BW

Found my problem. The mail contacts were hidden from Exchange address lists as I didn't want them to show up in the GAL.
