We have Exchange 2007 and I would like to create a group called All mail users which I have done no problem. The issue is that I would like to add everyone to the list. When I try and add members to that distribution list EVERYONE does not show up as an option. Is there something I am missing?

Everyone is only for permissions.
You have to add all users to the distribution group.

So I have always manage that group? Add and delete users. Is there away around that so the system sends emails to all mail enabled users when that distribution list is picked?

why not simply creating a dynamic distribution group that will include all domain users ?

Highfive + Dolby Voice = No More Audio Complaints!

Poor audio quality is one of the top reasons people don’t use video conferencing. Get the crispest, clearest audio powered by Dolby Voice in every meeting. Highfive and Dolby Voice deliver the best video conferencing and audio experience for every meeting and every room.

of course, open exchange management console -> recipient config ->distribution gourps ->  right click properties on the group -> mail flow setting -> message delivery restriction and put only senders in the following list

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
