I'm running Windows 2003 Server STD with Exchange 2003. I have created
a Distribution Group (global) in the AD but the group does not show up
in the GAL as a distribution list when I look at the GAL within my
Outlook client.

If you just created it, you have to wait for the GAL to update, once a day, or manually push the update and download the OAB on the outlook client

or -

To manually update the GAL, open Exchange System Manager, expand Recipients, click on Offline Address List, right click on Default Offline Address List in the right pane then click Rebuild.

The Rebuild could take some time depending on how many users you have.

Once the OAB rebuild is completed, you can download the results to OUTLOOK by using the F9 key.

I will see that list on GAL tomorrow because the Recipients is scheduled to run nightly.
Thanks all.
