    Exchnage 2003 - External Email addresses!!!

    Hi

    I am trying to create a Distribution List on Exchange so that we can send email to external email addresses.

    So far i have created a Distribution Group - Global and added internal email addresses to it. Then i created contacts but this time added SMTP email addresses as i have few people that are not in our organisation/

    The problem i am facing right now is that all emails that are sent to this distribution list are bouncing back!!! No idea why and this is the following error that i get:


    Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

    Subject:
    Sent: 28/01/2009 11:21

    The following recipient(s) cannot be reached:

    CN=Tina Roberts,OU=Governors,OU=User Accounts,OU=Work,DC=work,DC=local on 28/01/2009 11:21
    The e-mail address could not be found. Perhaps the recipient moved to a different e-mail organization, or there was a mistake in the address. Check the address and try again.
    <work-srv01.work.local #5.1.0>

    Any ideas as to why this is happening?

    is that the full NDR?

    the email address isn't listed there - do the contacts have a primary address listed?

    yes thats the Undeliverable: Delivery Status Notification (Failure)

    Under the properties of that contact i have added her external email address which is the hotmail address!!!!

    Have you got a step by step guide as to how i should set this up?

    The wierd thing is that i have also added some internal email addresses that are on exchange to this distribution list and obviously they never bounce back with the NDR!!!!

    I have 8 external email addresses/contact added to this distributin list but they all bounce back!!!!

    Exchange 2003

    Think i craked it.... I recreated the external contacts as mail enabled contacts and they seem to work now....


    MY only problem now is i dont want those contacts to be visible on the global address list? Is that possible?
