    OL2007 Find distribution list(s) email address is in

    I have a complicated little network of DLs, including some nested ones. I would like an easy way to find which DL(s) a particular email address appears in. Any ideas?

    Hi Mike,

    One way is to add all the email addresses in a DL to the notes field, they will then be searchable. A quick way to do this is start an email with the DL, expand it (using the + by the DL name), and copy the addresses. Paste the addresses into the notes field and save. Now when you search for a name or email address, the DLs with those names should show up. If you have a nested DL you'll either have to copy those emails into the notes field, too. Might be a lot of work to maintain?

    Hope that helps.

    Cheers,

    Nathan

    Nathan thanks,
    In a nice way - thats not a bad idea. DLs dont have a unique notes field - I think it is a contacts field isnt it. I'd have to amend my ways, I have a habit of holding historic email addresses in contacts fields. Definately one to consider - my DLs are relatively static once set up.
