People group in Outlook not available in SharePoint people picker

    Question

  • Hello, 

    Going in Outlook contacts, I have available a series of groups, which do not show up in SharePoint's people picker. Single people of the group can be found in the picker. In both cases are under the same enterprise network. 
    Any suggestions? 


    Thanks.

  • These are probably Distribution Groups and not Security Groups. SharePoint cannot see Distribution Groups. You would need to have your domain admins convert them to mail-enabled Security Groups.
