Hi there

for some reason i'm struggling a lot with getting a simple shared address book set up for my client.
the client is a school and need to set up different address books/distribution lists for example Grade 10 or Grade 11 etc.
They are on a Exchange online Plan 1 and all of them use Outlook 2010.
how can i get these groups listed in their outlooks and have them be able to edit these contacts from time to time.

thanks a lot

Exchange Online supports GAL segmentation (address book policies), but the last time I tried it, it was still not working for my tenants. You can read more about it here:

If you only want to create DGs, imkottees has given you the solution.

What you need to do is follow this article to Bulk-create external contacts:

Then, you can add any of those contacts to whatever distribution groups you like following the article imkottees linked above.

Why only a B grade?  You never came back to ask for additional information!  In the future, please interact with the Experts, or if you choose not to, then you shouldn't penalize them by giving a grade lower than A.

Thank you!
