    Have Replies Sent to ... (O2003, SP2)

    I tried placing a contact distribution list in the "Message Options | Have replies sent to" field. Outlook accepted the list name just fine (displayed the list name underlined) and even showed the names in the list when I displayed the list's properties. However, when I replied to incoming message, Outlook displayed only the sender's e-mail address (me). I decided to send the message anyway thinking that, well, Outlook might have some method for Bcc'ing the list. No such behavior. So, my question:

    Is designating a contact distribution list in the "Have replies sent to" field intended to work or is Outlook misleading me by accepting the list in the first place.

    Thanks,
    Al

    According to Have replies to your message sent to another person - Outlook - Microsoft Office Online, you cannot have replies sent to a distribution list. <img src=/S/crazy.gif border=0 alt=crazy width=15 height=15>

    Thank, Hans. Interesting that Outlook "apparently" accepts the distribution list as valid ...
