Does it help if you close the address book or restart KMail? Sometimes 
the synchronization between KMail and the address book doesn't work 
very good, i. e. KMail doesn't notice that the address book was 

Does the distribution list appear in the address selection dialog which 
pops up when you click on the [...] button next to the To: field 
(disable 'Show recent addresses' to make sure that only entries from 
the address book are shown)?
