One of our execs is having her assistant create new contact groups using her (the exec's) contact list. We gave full access to the assistant...she can view exec's contacts, create new ones, create groups...etc.

However, when she tries to populate the groups, she can only add her own (the assistant's contacts) from the drop-down.

Summary: Assistant making contact groups for exec with the exec's contacts. Assistant has full access...but can only populate the groups from assistant's contact list.

How can the assistant create groups with the exec's contacts?

Thank you.

The Exec has to do it themselves.

Everyone has to create their own DLs from their own contacts.  These by definition are local to the user that creates them and are only for that user's usage.

If you want something Global for everyone to use then it has to be done in Active Directory by creating a Mail Enabled Distribution Group,...then create a bunch of Active Directory Contacts in an OU and then add the Contacts to the Distribution Group.  It will then show up in the Global Address List (not Contacts) in Outlook.

Exchange is not designed to do Mass Mailings,...if that is the purpose behind this.  Mass Mailings are done with List Servers,...not normal Mail Servers.

I am going to give her access to the execs OWA. This will allow her to create contact groups.
