Create Distribution Lists Exchange 2010 Using Active Directory Users and Computers

We recently transitioned from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010.  When we had Exchange 2003, we were able to use Active Directory Users and Computers to create the Distribution List, Add Members, and it would populate in the Global Address List.  Now when we do this, it doesn't appear to be working, and the names aren't appearing in the Global Address List.  I also don't see the Distribution Groups appearing in the Exchange Management Console > Recipient Configuration > Distribution Group.

Does this mean we no longer can create our distribution groups using the ADU&C console?

I have the distribution groups created in active directory, do I have to remove them and then add them to the Distribution Group in EMC, or can I keep them, and just create them again in the EMC?

There are two types of distribution groups:
Mail-enabled universal distribution groups can be used only to distribute messages.
Mail-enabled universal security groups can be used to distribute messages as well as to grant access permissions to resources in Active Directory.

So, either way, the group has to be added in the EMC, correct? Gone are the days of just doing it in the ADU&C Snap-in?

Yes you can create a DL using AD users and computers which is only supported in Exchange 2003 . Exchange 2010 DL's needs to be done using EMC only.
