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?
