    Extracting contacts from distribution list (Outlook XP (Dutch))

    Good morning,

    Can anybody help me with the following question:
    Is it possible to select members from a distributionlist to mail to one of my coworkers. I thought it was a question of drag and drop, but noooo... than I'm going to send all of the members an email.
    The intention is that the coworker needs almost all the members of my distribution list for her own new list.

    Many thanks in advance,

    Can you not just drag and drop the DL into an email, send it to your coworker, and she can then just remove the members she doesn't want?

    If I drag the DL into an email, all the members are being adressed and the DL doesn't automaticcally become an attachment.

    You could create a duplicate of the distribution list (for example by copying, then pasting it).
    Remove the members you don't want from the copy.
    Send the copy to your colleague.
    You can then delete the copy if you wish.

    Then I think you will need to open the DL, save as another name, edit it yourself and forward it to your coworker.
