Hello,




From Outlook 2007 SP2 onwards, personal distributions lists can have an unlimited number of members.




My question is if these lists will also work via OWA on Exchange 2003 please?




We're created lists with hundreds of members and they work fine in Outlook 2007. When you create such lists, you get a warning that they'll only be compatible with Outlook 2007 SP2 or later clients.




Thanks,




- Alan.

I think so (but you should test one to be sure). Didn't they always work with OWA? I thought the limitation was with Outlook's Extended MAPI, not anything on Exchange.

Actually, according to this KB Article, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/238569, the limitation is on the server, so it might be in OWA too. You'll need to test it with a large DL. (I would, but we don't have any DL's that come close to the limit.)

Thanks again. Just wanted to check that it wasn't an obvious no-no. Will try it out on my test system. The limitation was cleint side all right, but that's not to say that the OWA client didn't have it either. The documentation on this is pretty light or not upto date, even for Outlook 2007.
