Dawn, we're doing the same thing also, but I will say that we had one Distribution List for just the external userid's and had stored that list in the External Domain. After upgrading to GroupWise 8, we could no longer update that distribution list. We opened a SR with Novell and were told basically that it was working as designed now. I assume that you wouldn't put the distribution list in the external domain since it will contain both internal and external users, but thought I should mention it just in case.

That's what I do Dawn. It works well.

We've had a request to include an external email address in one of our
distribution lists. This is the first request since we enabled IA
last year, and I think we can do it differently now. If someone on
the list is in the know on how to this, could you please look over my
plan (which is gleaned from a Cool Solutions Tip regarding
I already have and external domain and post office with a few users in
it that I've assigned gateway aliases to. What I'd like to do now
that IA is enabled is to just create the userid, turn off system
visibility, manually override the Internet Addressing to and Internet
Domain (which I believe/want to be specific to that one user), then
add that user to a distribution list.
Does that seem like it will work?
