Target Audience has a sharepoint group which has a DL
I made a large site which uses target audiences to show certain web parts to different groups. I created two sharepoint groups and added various distribution lists to them. Target audiences doesn't seem to work for people who are listed on the DL which is in the sharepoint group that is targeted.This style works for security, is there a way to make it work for target audience?Thanks

By " I created two sharepoint groups and added various distribution lists to them", do you mean adding Active Directory distribution group into SharePoint group? Could you please kindly share with me how did you do this? In my test environment, I had created an AD distribution group, managed to import it into SharePoint SSP user profile. However, I cannot add it into a SharePoint group, the distribution group won't show up in the people picker in Add User page(_layouts/aclinv.aspx).

I mean I created two actual sharepoint groups. Not AD groups.I created two sharepoint groups and use these in the target audience setting for some web parts. If I add individual people to these groups the targetaudience setting works. If I add a distribution list to the groups the target audenice setting doesn't work.
