When distribution list B, nested in dist list A (located in a different domain), is renamed, Dist list B is removed from the membership list of dist list A.


Work Around:

When renaming a distribution list that is nested in another dist list located outside its own domain, remember to add it back into the membership of the parent dist list.

Additional Information

If you have a distribution list nested in another distribution list in another domain, and if the child dist list is renamed, it is removed from the parent distribution list's membership and has to be added back in manually.

This does not occur if the two distribution lists are in the same PO or same Domain. In those cases, renaming the nested distribution list has no change. When renaming the Dist list, Checking the option "save old name" still returns the same problem.
