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?

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
