Who is Participating?
1.) Open ADUC from Administrative Tools
2.)  Navigate to Domain, right click and choose New -> Organizational Unit to create a new OU, and call it Contacts
3.)  Right Click on the new OU and select New -> Contact
4.)  Fill in the details for the contact, selecting an SMTP address - the SMTP address will be their external email address.
5.)  Now, you can add them to your distribution group(s)

Note: when you're adding them to the Distribution Group, you may need to explicitly include contact objects in the AD dialog box in the field "Select this object type".
Thanks for the points
