Distribution group doesnt show hidden contacts...is that normal?

Hi,
 
Using Exchange 2010 and Outlook 2007/2010 clients.
 
My customer sends alot of mail to some mail-enabled distribution groups. Occasionally when they are emailing the DG they may want to omit one of the recipients. Prior to the Exchange 2010 migration, they could go into Outlook, select TO: choose the DG and click the + next to the DG so it would expand and show all the recipients, then they would remove a recipient they didnt want to send to.
 
Now when they do it, it only shows the mailboxes that arent hidden. Is this normal behavior? They are coming from Exchange 2007 and claim it worked fine with it.
 
Thanks for any help.

When you hide a contact from the address list, it will also not show in the DL when opening the DL properties.

I'm assuming there is no way to hide a contact from the main address book but keep him unhidden from the DL?

If they need to edit the contacts you can always give them access to ECP (Exchange Control Panel) where they can login and edit the contacts as they please.
