Hello - occasionally, I'll set up a Global Distribution List in Exchange, and it never shows up in the GAL when addressing an email.  I try changing it to "Global" or "Universal" or "Domain Local", wait for a day, and it still isn't visible.  Not sure why this happens.

So - to pick up where we left off on this - it now seems that I am unable to add groups to the AD and have them show up in Outlook.  Is this a DC problem?

I figured it out - if I don't create the group as "email-enabled", it doesn't show up. it also recommends making it a Universal group if email-enabling, which is how I did it - and they show up consistently now.  thanks for your help.
