Hi Experts.   I need to create distribution lists on Exchange for my users that include email addresses of people not on the Exchange Server.  I can see how to add current users, but how do I add outside users.   Is this possible?

Thanks for the reply.   If I create them as a mail contact, do I have to have a server CAL or Exchange CAL for them?

Contacts don't require CALs, because the user isn't logging in to the server.

Sembee2 is correct, the contact does not have mail stored for the on the server and cannot log in, so they don't need a CAL.
They are commonly used for synchronising Global Address Lists.
