This is probably stupid simple, but I'm being lazy.

I have a list of email addresses, that I would like to create a new Global Dist list in Exchange. From Active Directory I open our OU, add new global dist, but how do I populate the members? I can only select from existing domain objects. Am I going to have to create a Contacts user for each one of these then create the list? I know it is pretty easy to import the list to Outlook, but I would like this group visible to anyone not just individual outlook accounts.
