I was requested to change the name of a global distribution list a few days ago which I did, however if I look it up in the global address list it is still listed under the old name. Is there somethind additional I need to do to make the change propogate?

Are you looking for the change using Outlook?  If you are running Outlook in cache mode (which is typical), you are actually viewing the Offline Address Book - a cached copy of the GAL that is stored on the PC.  If that's the case, you won't see the change until two things happen.  First, the OAB has to be rebuilt - by default that happens once a day at a specific time.  Second, the OAB has to be downloaded to Outlook. 

If you look at the Address Book using Outlook Web Access (OWA) or using Outlook with cache mode disabled, that forces a lookup of the GAL and you should see any changes immediately.
