    You will first need to create a mail enabled contact for each external user. I have provided a step by step below. If you have a lot of user then you might want to use powershell or another means to script this process.

    I would then recommend that you populate a custom attribute field or any other field with for example External Partners. The custom attibute can be found in the properties of the object. But they have to have the same information populated in the same field for the address list filter to pull the contact objects into the new address list.

    Then create an new address list using the custom attribute as a filter
