you can create a DL manually and then follow the command to create contact.

Import-Csv book.csv|%{New-MailContact -Name $_.Name -DisplayName $_.Name -ExternalEmailAddress $_.ExternalEmailAddress -FirstName $_.FirstName -LastName $_.LastName} | ForEach {Add-DistributionGroupMember -Identity "123" -Member $_.Name}

Create a file with name, displayname, externalemailaddress and save it as csv.

You can add this as a members of DL in same command. the DL is 123.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Contact and Distribution Groups
http://www.cmu.edu/computing/email/exchange/documentation/outlook-2007/calendar/groups.html


I think you firstly have to have the below
1. Contacts for users with External email address in your environment
2. Then create a DL\DynamicDL and have the Contacts as filter for this DL or have them added

This should work as you want .... if queries do let me know
