I have several large mail enabled distribution groups my users use for mass emailing.  Inside those groups are a bunch of nested groups.  Is it possible from the outlook client new message to expand all so that all addresses show up?  Right now all i can do is click the plus sign next to the group once it is added to the to, cc, or bcc field.  Once you click the plus sign is show all address and nested groups.  We have to go through and click the plus sign as we find all the nested groups.
--A little background--I use outlook 2010 and exchange 2007.  I just starting using a relay service take the load off my exchange server.  We use imap so i can adjust the smtp outgoing server.  this way i bypass the exchange server.

Unfortunatley in Outlook You must click on the individual + to expand each group

A way around it would be to Open a Single Email
Add the group
Expand them all

Then copy all the users into a new Distribution group

Doing this, you will create a New Distribution group without nested groups inside it

Thanks But I completly disagree with the grade you have posted.
The above steps are what would be required to create a distribution group without nested groups in the address Field, using the outlook client.

Can you provide the reason for the C Grade?

When grading you should be using the following as a Guide

C Grades are not warratned without providing a reason for the grade or offering the expert an opprotunity to change it

Can you please review, and reconsider
