    Outlook 98 - Distribution List

    A user here is trying to create a distribution list on Outlook account and then transfer it to another. The distribution list will include people from our 'Global Address List' and from Contacts.

    She wants to know if she can save the Distribution List to a disk or to the network and then re-save it to her Outlook.

    Currently, we have Outlook98 on an NT4.0 platform. Thanks. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    Re: Outlook 98 - Distribution List

    As far as I am aware, distribution lists cannot be sent to other destinations with Outlook 98 (the situation changes for OL2K)
    What you have to do is <UL><LI>Create the dist list
    <LI>Open the dist list, select Properties and then Add/Remove Members. This opens with the first name selected and you can copy the names by going to the end and using Shift+Left Click to select all names.
    <LI>Open a new mail item and paste the names into the text area of the mail item.
    <LI>Send it to the other person. They now have to copy the names from the email text area, start the process of creating a new dist list and then paste the names into the names area of the Add/Remove dialogue. When this is OK'd, Outlook will take them through the process of rationalising all the names <img src=/S/puke.gif border=0 alt=puke width=60 height=15> but when finished, the other user will have the dist list.[/list]In OL2K, you create the dist list and then mail it to someone else. Progress!
    Hope this helps
