    New DL from email

    Is there any way to create a distribution list from all of the names found in an email sent to me? (versus copying and pasting each one separately). I tried to copy-all, new DL, paste, but it doesn't work! I sure would appreciate any help I could get.

    Just the standard copy | paste | select all, etc. You CAN add names one at a time to contacts. Trying to make a distribution list from all of the names on a single email is my dilemma!

    This is OL2000 method. Right click on the email header, use Select All the names and copy them using Ctrl+C. Open the address book and create a new distribution list. Name it and click on Select Members, then click the mouse in the right hand

    This is exactly what I am trying to do but I can't get my cursor into that right box in the select members dialogue!
    Are you using OL in corporate mode ? - I'm using OL2K IMO mode
    Sure seems like a simple task - or one someone should have made an add-in for?
    If I put multiple addresses in 1 contact's email field, will outlook send to all addresses correctly?
    (I'm trying to import a colleague's lists from eudora.)

    i thought that feature was only in OE?

    i don't use IMO enough to know if you can create it in OE (export the message to oe) and export the dl back to outlook.
