Can I nest distribution lists?

I would like to be able to nest distribution lists, so that when I add a name to list A it will automatically be used in all lists list A is used in without having to include list A again in all these lists.
I just switched from MS Outlook which has this feature and miss it.

If you add one distribution list as a member of another, all that will happen is that the contents of the one will be merged with the other.

Yes, I understand that, but when I add a member to list A I have to re-merge to get it included in the other list.

List A is not maintained as a sub-set of the other list. The two lists are merged as a single list. They’re not nested.

So yes, if you add to list A, you will manually have to add it’s contents to any other lists in which you have previously included its members.
