Does anyone know of a way to set up a listserv in Outlook 2007/Exchange 2007?  We are looking to create a distribution list with a bunch of external email addresses that can be used by external people to send to.  So, for example, we would have a distribution list  set up and anyone could send an email address to CIO_Team@example.com and it would go to everyone in that distribution list.  I'm thinking that this isn't possible without purchasing some sort of software that would do it, but does anyone know of a way in Exchange 2007 to do it?  thanks!

You can do that with a standard distribution list and creating the external addresses as contacts that are added to the group.

There are some security settings that you may need to play with to get it working so the mails going out from you as the outgoing mail would look like it was sent by an external domain so could be dropped.
You umay want to only allow members of the list to be allowed to send to it so it dosnt get abused.

Just create a Contact for each of the external email addresses in exchange and add the external email to each contact.
Now just create a distribution list and add all of those contacts in.

What you cant do is get ppl joining the list automatically etc.

it's very easy and normal just create the Distribution list and you add you local domain members and for the external members, you can create a exchange contact for each one and then add this contact member of that distribution list you have created
