I agree with this request. We house a large world wide project and we have SharePoint as well. The problem is when somebody is already in SharPoint as a guest user you can not add that email address as a contact because of the same smpt address. Therefor DL are not an option and we have to use Groups. Here you can add external user directly via outlook to that group. Problem with groups is that is creates another SP area and their own notebook etc and we don't want that because we already have a SP. Also a problem with groups is that people can sign out of the group theirselves. Not ideal because we need to track who is in which team. DL seems better for emailing groups but it is missing the option to add external contacts directly regardless if they are a contact or not.
