hi guys,

I'd like to create a distribution group, so that Outlook can send it to various email addresses within this group to various people in different companies.

Can this be done in Exchange at all? Or in Outlook?

I'd prefer it in Exchange, so that this distribution can be accessed by everyone rather than being local?

Thanks
Yash

If you are using Exchange 2007, 2010 or 2013 you can see here how to accomplish that ->Configure Distribution Group Properties

If you're adding email addresses from outside organizations to your distribution list, create a CONTACT within active directory with the appropriate email address.  You can then add that contact to that distribution group and it will send messages to that email address.

This is quite simple.

- Create a contact for each external email address that is not being hosted from your Exchange Server

- Create a Distribution Group or Use and existing one
- Add the contacts to the distributon group that you choose
