I need to see if I can create a distribution group or some type of list that someone can send
to and everyone in that group or list will receive emails that contain gmail, yahoo. msn. and so forth email address that aren't in our exchange active directory or domain.

You would create a contact object in active directory and add the email address.  Then you can attach it to the group.

Although depending on how many users are involved, it might be a better idea to outsource the list to any external provider. Many of the external providers have a free tier for small lists and a small number of messages. Saves clogging up the AD with contacts which you need to maintain.
