Exchange 5.5 and Outlook Xp

Sure you can. The way I do it is I use Outlook and have personal address books set up (since only when logged in as the exchange admin can I add names to the Global address list). Click to send a mail, click on the to: button, choose show names fromthe personal address book. Click new. Then you create a personal distribution list, add any memebers from the global list you want (including those set up with internet addresses). Then if you need to create entries just for your list (not in the global lists), click the new and enter internet mail address. Then type the display name and address to send to. Viola.

If you need more details or assistance with this, e-mail me. I'll be glad to help. Good Luck!

If you want the recipient to see "Quickbook Clients" in the To box, you have two options:

1) Work with the administrator to create a distribution list in the Exchange GAL named Quickbook Clients and populate it.


2) Do as the other answer suggested and create a personal distribution list -- you can do this in Contacts, no need for a PAB. PLUS, put the DL in the Bcc box when you create the message. PLUS, an entry in contacts named Quickbook clients with either a dummy address or your own email address. Put this in the To box.
