Hello!
I am using Outlook 2003 and have a problem with editing Distribution lists.
Two of them that I have created work fine. Right click>properties>add and remove users etc appears.
With one list, however, there is a problem - Right click and properties gives only general tab with the members and no option to add/remove etc.
I have tried removing Outlook contacts and adding them again, also creating new Outlook profile. No help. Outlook is not using cached mode at the moment.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you all in advance,

I am having a distribution list problem and I will try and explain as best I can.

It started out as a shared distribution list(called UBB), and normally when you would go to add it to an email where most distribution lists or contacts show up with the name and a line under it (ex: UBB), and you can click on that contact/list and open up their information.
Well whenever I add UBB, it does not link to the distribution list and in the "To:" text box, it only shows up as UBB, not underlined or anything.

So, I made a local distribution list and added the contacts to it. Still when I go to add the list as the contact of the email, and type in UBB or try to link it in there, it still will not work. So what do I need to change to get this to work?

Thanks for any help, and if you need more information I will gladly give it to you.

I just recently switched to Outlook 2007. The program was used by another user so it had distribution lists already in it. I updated one of the lists by deleting some names and adding others but now when I send an email and put in the name of the distrubution list and then click on the + it shows the names I deleted and none of the names I added. When I look at the distrubition list under contacts it shows the correct list of names.

I've tried deleting the list and recreating it but still get the old list. What should I do?

I'm using Outlook 2003, and have discovered that a couple of the distribution lists I have set up have stopped working (turns out it's been a problem for a few weeks now).

I send off a message to one of these lists and the message seems to send okay (no error message). But then it just vanishes into the void. Nobody is receiving it. I can send to individuals no problem, but the groups never get the message. I haven't changed anything with the security settings recently.

I've checked with my ISP, and they can't find anything strange happening on their end.

I suspect it's an Outlook issue, but who knows.

I already tried deleting the group and recreating it, but it still doesn't work.

Any ideas?

Greetings,

I have recently created a distribution list of about 700 contacts in Microsoft Outlook 2003. When I attempt to send a message to this list I get back an error message that says:

Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

Subject: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
Sent: 11/14/2003 5:39 PM

The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

XXXXXXXXXXXX (deleted email address) on 11/14/2003 5:40 PM
452 too many recipients
The error message continues, listing every contact in the distribution list. I am aware of distribution lists in Outlook that have thousands of contacts without experiencing this problem. Any ideas as to what the problem may be/how to fix this problem?

Thanks.

I'm having a Problem Creating a Distribution List In Outlook. First, let me say, before someone asks...I have already completely un-installed, blown away all the old "pst" files (after first exporting all of the outlook data to a backup.pst file) then re-installed Outlook, imported my backup.pst file, so I'm working with a fresh install and still having the same problem.

Version: Outlook XP SP-1

Problem Description:

When I go into "Contacts", then click on "New" and select "Distribution List". The distribution list dialogue box comes up, but when I click on select members, the list that comes up, that should show everyone in "Contacts" is blank. As for as I know, I have checked every possible setting and drop down, trying to figure out how to get the list of Contacts to appear, but I've been completely unsuccessful. Hence, the decision to do a complete re-install of Outlook.

Has anyone seen this problem before...does anyone know the cause?
 

A:Problem Creating a Distribution List In Outlook

Thanks for making me do that. Same thing was happening to me.

Go to Tools-Email accounts. Use Change existing address book(s). If you've got any in there, remove them.

Create a new Outlook address book.
Create a new Personal address book.
Right-click your contacts; properties. Tell it to be an outlook address book.
Now, it becomes an option in the dropdown when you select a new distribution list.

Whew.

It was a little tedious, so I'm not sure if I forgot any steps.

A distribution List was deleted by accident.

The distribution List was manually rebuilt, using the same name as before.

When clicking on the TO/CC/BCC fields to display the selection box of addresses, the newly rebuilt list DOES NOT appear. However, the AUTOCOMPLETE option will find the list. From what I understand, AUTOCOMPLETE is probably finding the OLD version (which happens to have the right addresses).

The difficulty is that many emails are sent to multiple Lists, and this one doesn't appear in the selection box to choose along with several others for a particular email.

Hi everyone,

My colleagues and I use Outlook 2003, and connect via Microsoft Exchange Server.

Recently, some staff members have noticed that when they send an email to a distribution list, the email also gets sent to other random contacts who are not even added to the list.

Although these random contacts are definately not on the distribution list, they are added to the To box when the distribution list is added!

It is not one particular list - it has happened to different staff members with different lists, and on different computers. We have tried deleting the lists and starting again from scratch, but the same thing occured.

Does anyone know what could be causing this? Is it likely to be a network/server issue rather than Outlook?

Hope someone can help!

Thanks in advance!

Hi, I need some help from you guys to clarify some issues in Outlook 2003.
I have added some contacts, catagorised them, eg. Colleagues, Friends, Family. Now that I want to send e-mails to all my colleagues.

I opened the "New Message to Contact" then clicked on the "To" button and waited to see the list of my contacts show up, however, it shows a dialog box saying:

"The address list could not be displayed (not including the smiley ofcourse). The contacts folder associated with this address list could not be opened; it may have been moved or deleted... blah blah blah"

Knowing that nothing is deleted or damaged, I ignored it, and tried to create distribution list, gave it a name and clicked on "Select Members" then the same messsage box appears (as above).

I've been told that it uses contacts in the "Address Book" of Windows (to my knowledge, when you back up Outlook 2003 .pst files, these entried aren't backup too) and I would liek to keep my contacts in one place, in the .pst that is, so does this mean, to have distribution list (mailing list) to mass mail to my colleagues, I must use Windows's Address Book ? This has also been an issue with my clients who use Outlook.

How does all these contacts thingy work ? I would like to get my head around it, gimme a hand guys
 

A:Outlook Mailing-List / Distribution List

You need to set up Outlook to use your Contacts as an address book. Go to Tols > Options and click the Mail Setup tab and select the Mail Options button. Select the radio button for View or Change Existing directories or Address books. Click next and see if there is an entry for Outlook Address book and if it isn't there add it. If it is there it may be corrupted thus your message so delete it and recreate it. Once it is in there open your contacts folder and in the Outlook bar on the left right click on the contact item and select properties. select the Outlook Address Book tab and put a check in "Show this Folder as an Address Book" Should work after that.

A:Outlook 2K: How to create distribution list based upon certain outlook category???

Hi Jazzek -- I just did this, with the help of Russ Valentine at the MS Outlook newsgroups. Here are the instructions he sent me (and I used successfully):

"Change the Contacts Folder View to Categories. Right click and drag the
desired Category to
a newly created sub folder then choose Copy. Make sure the new sub folder
has been enabled as an email address book by right clicking on it and
choosing Properties and Outlook Address Book Tab and checking the box to
enable
as email address book. Create your Distribution List but make sure the Show
Names drop down field points to the new sub folder then shift select all the
contacts and voila."

I hate cruising the MS Newsgroups, as the interface is so weird and searching the archives is a total pain on their site (and incomplete in my newsreader), but I DO occasionally get help there.

Hope this helps. If I've misunderstood your problem, post me back.

I have searched and found a slight answer to this question (which seems to be "no way"), and have searched many other forums for information, however . . . thought I'd post it here too to see if there is any new info on this problem.

In Outlook Express, I can view .any single contact's membership in various groups/distribution lists on the "other" tab . However, in OE I cannot sort or view this information in very meaningful ways, nor view those various memberships in any of the main contact pane views.

In Outlook 2000, by sharing the OE address book, I can view and sort much contact information in more meaningful ways, but there seems to be NO way to see how many distribution lists/groups a single contact belongs to.

SURELY SURELY SURELY there must be a code or patch to create a field to show this info in Outlook 2000! If anyone has a hint -- even a book to refer me to that I would wade through (and I would), please repond.

Thanks for the help

I recently bought a new computer with Windows XP and Office 2002.

I successfully transfered data for contact folders. When creating distribution lists, I noticed that in the distribution list, the "NAME" column listed the e-mail addresses as did the "EMAIL ADDRESS COLUMN"

Yet the fields in my contact address books are all correctly filled in (just as I had in Outlook 98)

Now the distribution list works, but it is annoying to not be able to see names so I can keep the list updated. A number of the e-mail addresses are difficult to decipher.

I have gone to Microsoft - do details on sorting the fields within the distribution list. Microsoft won't talk to me because software was OEM with Dell. Dell says they don't support software. No documentation I have looked for addresses this issue. It is frustrating. Anyone with a solution??

In the words of a famous politician "I feel your pain".

I think Outlook Express was wheeey easier. I dunno how I got roped into Outlook other than its got some god features like calendar that you dont have to revert to another calender for (eg everything is supoededly in one place)

Also I think its bogus how MS shifts the blame to others. MS made teh softwere the dealer only sells it. If you blow up a tire on your GM car, you can still talk to Firestone about it.

In business, obviously large companies only want to sell more stuff they realise that fixing stuff is generally costing them money (unless you pay for it).

Anyway, I have a office Im associated with. Most people dont go there so we all use outlook.

In the "contacts area" under "actions" you can see "create new distribution list:

Under select members you should be able to highlight the ones you want in that list.

Then, when you want to send to those, you type the group name and it send to all of them.

To review them you can go back to the original box and add, delelte, or modify them.

Lemme know if that helps.

You might have him in the contact list in multiple places. This is often common when users are members of multiple groups in the same contact list. Thats why he's the only one that complained he received it multiple times. Chances are his email appears there by itself, then as part of a group, and yet as part of another group.

To resolve this you would have to remove all groups in the contact list. Verify that the individual emails appearing in the list are unique, remove the guys emails from the groups it appears in, and then re-add the groups back to the contact list. Please try this and post with feedback. Thanks

I'm using OE 5.5 to send an announcement to a large group of business associates & friends. I'd like to be able to send this announcement email without the recipients seeing a long list of names & email addresses in the "To" subject line of the email when they receive it. Is there any way under OE 5.5 to send an email without the email itself showing all the names of the recipients in the "To" field? In other email clients that I've used in the past, you can create a distribution list, and tell the email client program to suppress the showing of individual names on the list, and just show in the "To" subject line, for example, "My Business Associates & Friends". Have not been able to determine if OE 5.5 can do this. Thanks.

Open your Address Book and create a new group using "My Business Associates & Friends" as the name of the group. Select the recipients for the group. In the box at the bottom of the screen for Name: paste "My Business Associates & Friends" again and insert your email address in the E-Mail: field.

When you are ready to send your message, click on the To: field, select the Contact "My Business Associates & Friends" and for the Bcc: field, select the Group "My Business Associates & Friends".

Your recipients will see only your email address if they double click on the "My Business Associates & Friends" title.

Is there anyway to merge my outlook's memory to a contact list?

What I mean is like, I have entered in so many e-mails manually not knowing that in the future I would need them to be all in a contact list. But they are still stored some how, as in when I begin to type the first 2 letters or numbers of the e-mail address, Outlook automatically knows which one it is and inputs the rest of the address for me.

Is there anyway to get those moved into an address book / contact list of some sort?

If not, no worries.

Additionally, wether I get these imported to a contact list by some feature or if I have to manually input each e-mail address, is there a way I can send a mass e-mail to all of them at the same time, but without anyone knowing that I sent it to 100 other people?

A:Outlook 2010 distribution list sizes

If this is a company with an Exchange server, they may be limiting the number of members in the distribution list.

If this is on your own, 2010 shouldn't restrict the size.

An alternate method of making a larger distro list is to break them up into groups and add the groups to another distro list:

group 1 members - Members 1-30
group 2 members - Members 31-60
group 3 members - Members 61-90
group 4 members - group 1, group 2, group 3

B.T.W. All of our software is up to date with service packs and everything else.

I've created a distribution list. I clicked the "Add Members/Add New E-Mail Contact". I put in the "Display name" and "E-mail address". I unchecked the "Add to Contacts" box and then I click the "OK" button. Now, I realized I've type in the wrong email address or if the user has changed his email address, I double click person's name and it didn't launch a window for me to edit but instead it opened a small window that display a summary of the person's information. I mouse over and click the "View more options for interacting with this person" icon and then click "Outlook Properties". Now, a window popup for me to edit this person's email address, "Display name", and a whole bunch of other information. I've made my changes and click the button "Save & Close". Now, I'm back to the Distribution window. In the "E-mail" column, it still shows the old email address and NOT the email address that I just finished modifying.


Here's what the actual email address is in the property window:

And noticed the E-mail address ([email protected]) above. Below is what is incorrect:


The email address showing here in the "E-mail" column shows "[email protected]" instead of "[email protected]". How do I fix this?

Hi,

I have a shared distribution list in Outlook. Those people included are selected from a global address book. I have a list of people I need to add currently in excel (not their email addresses, just their names as they would appear in the global address book).

Outlook will only let me add one name at a time, and I have to add it manually (it won't even let me cut and paste then Ctrl+K).

Is there any way to add all of these new people in one go, or will i just have to trudge through manually?

Many thanks

Dave

Hi,

I tried Outlook help first and it suggested opening an email and then clicking on the Insert menu and choosing Item to insert a distribution list into an email. The problem is that there is no Item option on the insert menu! (unless I am blind)

I want to be able to share groups/distribution list with other colleagues. We do not have a server presently, our email is not currently managed in-house. Any suggestions? This would be especially helpful when setting up a new user.

Thanks!

A:Can I share my group/distribution list with another outlook user?

You could try exporting your Outlook contacts to a csv file.
The file could be emailed and then imported into the other user's Outlook.
