New Distribution group added in Exchange 2007 on 2003R3 Server does not show up

I added a new Distribution group called "Service" in Exchange Management Console, "New Distribution group" (which I have done numerous times before).  If I look through the list of distribution groups it does not show up, if i try to search in Exchange management console or Active directory it does not find anything called service, but if i try to add it again in managment console, it tells me it already exist.

It is possibly the name "Service" that is causing the problem?

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Are you able to send an email to that distribution list?

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Did you check if there was a email address linking to the distribution list?

I have tried everything to delete the "service" distribution group from shell - but it tells me it does not exist,  i tried added it from shell and it tells me it can't because it exist.

i applied all the latest updates and rebooted - still can not see it.

i added 6 more distribution groups the same way i added service and they all work fine.

i have a feeling "Service" is some sort of reserved account.

I am going to set up a different name and move on,  thanks anyway.
