When you use the Microsoft Outlook object model to create a distribution list and you view the distribution list by using Microsoft Outlook Web Access (OWA), members of the distribution list that have external e-mail addresses may be missing from the list. As a result, you cannot send messages to all members of the distribution list. When you view the same distribution list by using Microsoft Outlook, all members of the distribution list appear in the list.
When you create a distribution list that includes external e-mail addresses by using the Outlook object model, the Windows Address Book format of the external e-mail addresses is wrapped in the Entry ID. An example of an external address is user@hotmail.com or user@yahoo.com. In this situation, OWA does not process the external e-mail addresses correctly.
