E-mailing to a distribution list

I am unable to send an e-mail to any distribution list that I have in Outlook.  Thinking that it was an Outlook problem, I created a Contacts Group in my gmail account, but I am not able to e-mail that group either from my Blackberry. 
Any ideas?

Re: E-mailing to a distribution list

Hi and welcome to the forums!

Couple of questions:


Are you setup as BIS or BES?

"I am unable to send an e-mail to any distribution list that I have in Outlook" is that from the PC?

The contacts group is setup in Gmail, and not on the BB correct?

Re: E-mailing to a distribution list

I believe you have to create the group on the BlackBerry. I know that Outlook distribution lists don't synchronize to the BlackBerry. I've never tested with gmail. But if its the same you can just re-create the group in the Address Book by displaying the menu and choosing New Group
