For some reason our users want to have a distribution list that is alphabetical by last name. Does anyone know if this can be done?

I am a bit confused by your question. A DL is a single address that users can send email to that points to multiple addresses (basically). The users would only see the list name when sending mail to it. Why would a user want the actualy DL to be in a certain order? I'm a bit confused.

Exactly! The only reason I can see for it is that they wanted the recipient list to show no favouitism. From a real world perspective it is complete nonsense but you know what users are like! I just need to know that there is definitely no way of doing it.

I feel for you :-(

I think the fix for you problem is a bit of social engineering as opposed to Exchange engineering :-)
