Outlook 2007 connecting to Exchange 2003.  I want to create a distribution list to e-mail several external e-mail addresses.  At the receiving end I would like the name of the distribution iist to appear (eg: Monthly reports) but I don't want the recipient names to be shown nor do I want them to expand distribution list.  How can this be done?  Any helpful suggestions are appreciated.  TN

A custom Outlook DL can only be expanded by you and none other as they dont have the data :)

You will have to first create Personal contacts in Outlook and then Create a DL with the Name you want and add those Outlook contacts to the DL and try with your Public domain or a friend to check

@Rancy If the user on the receiving end hits "Reply All" then they will see all the names on the list.

Thanks all. Turns out I needed to create an email-enabled d-list on the server itself to handle all of the clients angles (no names shown, etc.)
