I'm trying to make a distribution list and I want to use contacts from another user's contact list. I am a delegate with full access to the contact list, but I can't seem to get outlook to recognize anything but my personal contacts when selecting members of the list. Am I doing something wrong or is this not possible? Outlook 2010, Exchange 2007.

You can't use shared contacts in a DL. You'd need to copy the contacts to your own contacts folder or copy the email addresses and paste into a DL. (You can do this using a view that displays only the display name and contacts, copy and paste into the Members field.)
