Outlook not getting latest Distribution Lists from Exchange 2010

Q: Outlook not getting latest Distribution Lists from Exchange 2010


I have an exchange 2010 server with a large number of distribution groups. Everything is working OK, until I edit, add or remove a distribution group.
The desktop clients running outlook pick up on the change immediately, but the laptop clients are still seeing the old groups.
OWA clients also see the change immediately.
Both the desktops and laptops are running the same image of windows 7 and office 2010.
I have tried plugging in a laptop to an ethernet cable to rule out wireless and I don't think it's a desktop vs laptop issue.

Any ideas on why only some outlook clients get the latest changes made to distribution groups in exchange (management console) ?

Hi All,

I work in HR, and am being told by the IT folks that something isn't possible. But I just don't believe it so I'm posting here to ask for your help.

I may not have the perfect wording since I'm not expert so please be patient. My understanding is that employees use Outlook email version 2007 - so when I need to send emails to the same group of people I can create personal distribution lists. I just copy email addresses from an excel file or to TO: line of an existing email and paste into the members box under "new distribution list creation - add members".

However, here's where the problem is. The marketing department gets data from me to create and maintain global distribution lists that need to be available to certain approved/authorized employees on the Outlook Exchange server thingie. There are about 10 to 15 lists that need to be updated every 2 weeks. My IT people are telling me that the only way to update those global lists on the Exchange is to give them a list of email address to add or remove and that they have to add or remove each email address manually one at a time. My idea was to just send them a new list of email addresses for each list every two weeks or whenever and then they could juse delete the old distribution list since it's out dated and create a brand new global list so nobody has to try and identify just the changes for those 10 to 15 lists (very time consuming).

BUT - they are telling me that the o... Read more

Good day folks,

I have a question which I've searched about for based on Exchange 2007 and Distribution lists but can't seem to find a solid working answer, so here goes!

Microsoft Exchange 2007
Microsoft Windows 2003 Server

A distribution list (Let's call it 'Example List') has been freshly created.

We have two department managers ('Manager A' and 'Manager B') who have requested the ability to share administration of the members of this list.

On a minor note, it will also be used for permissions on various systems so when created through Exchange 2007 Management Console was set up as a Security group.

As a email enabled security group, this works fine - Members receive mail.
"Manager A" can add/remove members of the list using Outlook 2007 whilst set as the distribution list manager (Managed By) in the Group Information tab of the list properties on Exchange Management Console and the "Manager can upate membership list" is checked under the Managed By tab of the list's properties in Active Directory.

However, this of course allows only one Managed By member.
I've tried using a security group to get around this but then both Managers can't amend the list.

I've checked Manager A's permissions on the list using Active Directory (Advanced Permissions) and can see that Manager A has a permission of "Write Members" to this object only.
If I manually add &qu... Read more

Hi, Does anyone know of a way to create a distribution list based on criteria? For example, say I wanted to create a distribution list with the members only living in a certain city (ie. Do a search for New York, and add all those people to a list instantly)?

Is there an easy way, perhaps a 3rd party plugin, where I can create this list without going through the contact list and picking those that need to be in there?

Also, why doesn't the list update its members if that individual members contact info has been changed elsewhere?

When I go to use that distribution list it says there are no recipients in that list to use. However when I open up the contacts folder I can see them.

No I know if you hit "update now" it repairs to the connection or something?!??!

Doing that works, however is this step neccessary. What does update now do?

I would like to change some settings on our Distribution groups.

Will it be possible to have the users color the messages using the Outlook Categories and that these category and read/unread settings are shared to the other distribution group members?

For public folders this is an option using the "maintain per-user read and unread information for this folder"
I would like to have functionality like that in my distribution groups.

Now I have added a public folder per distribution group where the group members can see if any message is already being handled (read and colored message).
But the users cannot work from their mailbox and have to go to the public folder before they can see the categories now.

I've currently been upgrading some PC's around our office (Machines started with Outlook 2000 and I've been installing Outlook 2003 as a part of Office 2003 suite) and have come across the following problem.
We have distribution lists set up for our business sections, but it seems since I started upgrading the PC's that these lists aren't working. When someone sends an email using any distribution list the message sits in the outbox and doens't get sent while sending to multiple individual email addresses works fine. Our server has Exchange Server 5.5, and email accounts are set to 'Microsoft Exchange Server' as the service being used.
Sorry if this is a bit vague but I'll refine my information as people request certain facts.

Thanks in advance,

Well, I re-applied Service Pack 4 to our Exchange Server (5.5) and it appears to have fixed the problem. Maybe removing the distribution lists and adding them again would have had the same result.

I'm running Outlook 2007. I have noticed that when I create a distribution list in my contacts folder, I can use it for a while, but after a few days, it seems to disappear. What normally happens is I try to send an email to the distribution list. Autocompletion finds it ok, but when I hit the send button, I get the " An internal support function returned an error " message. If I click on the + in the to line, I get an error message: "The name or distribution list has been deleted and is no longer a valid Address Book entry. The operation failed. An object could not be found." Sure enough when I look in my contact folder, the distribution list is gone.

This is happened several times. I create DLs and then they randomly disappear.

Oh, man! Today is NOT a good day!

When I got in to the office, the internet was down. Well, it wasn’t just down - the server had crashed, so we were incommunicado for the entire morning.

Now we’re back up, and I went to send out a message (in Outlook 2002 with internet email) using 4 of the distribution lists, and a few attachments.

The problem- some of the people who received it got up to 7 copies of the e-mail!!! Now, I checked the lists, thinking that maybe their names were duplicated, but nope.

This was a big e-mail size-wise. And, to top it all off, I kept on getting e-mails from sender [email protected] with incident information!! It had “report to sender” in the subject line, and listed all the individuals e-mails on the distro lists.

WHAT HAPPENED?!?! I’m getting angry calls form members who just had their inboxes clogged with 5 copies of the same message!!!!

I am setting up a distribution list "DL" and on said set-up, in bottom at the right-hand corner of the set-up page, it has a box marked "private." What's it for?
I know that when you set-up a "DL" you can use a category, and, instead of the email reading "TO: DL Name" when sent, it will list all members of the DL, and I know that if you want the DL members to be unknow to each other you put the DL in the bcc box. So, what's the purpose of checking or not checking the "private" box during set-up. I have looked and looked for an answer to this simple, meaning dumb, question, but cannot get anyone or any site, or any publication to tell me its purpose. Can you enlighten me?

I have a very large Outlook 2002 distribution list. I would like to create another distribution list which will have most of the same names, but without a few of the recipients ('unwanteds') in the original. However, I want to keep the original list as it is. Does anyone know how to do this? It seems as though it should be easy, but I have tried the following and they do not work for the reasons stated:

1. Start a new distribution list, add the original into it, then delete the 'unwanteds'. This has the undesired effect of removing the 'unwanteds' from the original list, where they are still 'wanteds'.

2. Select all the names from the original list, copy and paste into a new distribution list. Unfortunately, all the pertinent "edit" functions are inactive, and the "ctrl-c", "ctrl-v" shortcuts also do not work when you are in a distribution list.

3. Open original distribution list, use "Save as..." to save a new distribution for editing out the 'unwanteds'. This does not work because the "Save as..." option changes the name of the original list, it does not save a copy with a new name, like it would do if you were using "Save as..." when working with most filetypes.

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

Good morning everyone,
So the other day something incredibly weird had occurred. I was receiving email normally on my phone, came into work, logged in, and began working on my trouble tickets. I noted that when I went back to Outlook to view an email, the email in particular was gone... and then all were gone. My folders, and emails within them, still remained the same. I attempted to research what on Earth happened but I haven't been able to find anything specific to my issue.
I'm using Outlook 2010 connected to an Exchange 2010 server for work. Outlook was setup as cached exchange mode but that has since been changed. The emails also disappeared from my phone's inbox too... it's as if everything was deleted and Exchange figured that's what it should be and synced everything that way. Deleting my OST didn't resolve or resync anything. I ran the scanpst tool on the ost file which reports 93 errors, but as I read the scanpst tool can't repair an OST and thus doesn't do anything.
Does Outlook have some sort of log that may explain what on Earth happened? I can't find any error messages or any other reasons for what may have happened. My view settings weren't changed, nothing has changed on my end. There is no spyware / malware installed on the PC as far as I can tell. No real issues in the Sync issues folder other than a Forms syncing issue which seems to be related to Exchange needing a patch (but can otherwise be ignored).

A:Outlook 2010 / Exchange 2010 randomly deleted inbox email?

Are you the only person using that Exchange server who has this issue? Check with the IT department to see if they can recover the emails in your mailbox from the server. It's possible they recently did some maintenance on the mail server that caused this issue. That fact that both Outlook and your phone are having this issue points to this being an Exchange server problem, as Outlook uses autodiscover and MAPI while your phone uses ActiveSync to connect to the server.
Do you have access to your email using Outlook Web Access? If so, log in and see if the emails are there. If not, it's definitely a server issue.
If your mail is still on the server, one thing you could try is re-enabling the cached Exchange mode, saving the change, and then restarting Outlook. The last thing to try is to delete the email account profile and recreate it. Make sure to get the proper settings from IT if you don't already have them -- although since you are using Exchange and autodiscover, that's usually just a case of entering your username and password when you recreate it.

In my Outlook 2010 I have set up a number of Contact Groups. I've named them A, B, C, D.............Z. In each one are the surnames of the recipients, e.g. in the A is Anderson, Addy, Apple, Adams, Aggenbach, etc., and likewise in B to Z. One of them (lets say the V's) have 35 addresses, and the A's have 6 addresses.

The problem I'm having is that when choosing the V Group (and some of the others), then when I click Send then it forever says Sending and never completes the task. So, it's impossible to send any other emails thereafter: they all then sit in the Outbox, waiting for the V task to finish. When I close and then re-open Outlook it just continues to send. I then have to delete some of the V recipients, until there are about 5 or so only, then it's works OK. Could the problem be, amongst others, the size in kB of the V Group, perhaps?

My company has just begun getting spam from an unknown source that has me and my IT manager stumped.
The mails are typical for medical pills which we have as one of our filters in detecting spam emails; Echange 2003. These particular emails come From an outside email address (different everytime) but have a reply to address of an internal distribution list. In this case it is the Directors (company directors). The emails arent generally sent to one individual but a complete distribution list.
Anyone have any general ideas what we can do to stop this as the number of emails multiply daily.

A:Spam from internal distribution lists

Sounds like a spammer got ahold of the internal address somehow. Probably due to a computer that would have the address listed in the "Address Book", that got infected by spyware/malware, or a customer that would have the e-mail address on their computer.

As for stopping it, I don't know, because the only way to "stop" spam is to get the source to stop, and that's easier said than done. Doing an analysis of the full headers can reveal the "true" source, which is rarely the source in the "From" box.

I've been helping out with an open-source application that we hope will help reduce spam, but it's still in development. Until we get it off the ground, I've been using the SpamCop online reporting service ( It's about the easiest way to report spam to the admins of the networks referenced in the spams I get. You might consider doing that.

Just my 2 cents.

At work we're using Outlook 2003 on an exchange server and we're trying to send out an email to everyone in the organization - we have set up a distribution list for this purpose. The member of staff authorized to send emails to the entire organization also has what we call a "generic mailbox" set up - she has a personal mailbox and her "generic" one which shows up as coming from the entire team that she works for.

The email sends fine, and people receive it without any trouble. The difficulty is that sometimes when people receive the message, the From: field is showing as blank rather than displaying the "generic mailbox" name - "Kent Adult Social Services". This only happens sometimes though, once she sent 3 such messages from the same machine and same user account and 2 had the From: field showing up while the other did not(!)

Anyone have any clue what could be causing this? Please ask if you need more information . By the way, the work PCs are running Windows XP SP2 and Outlook 2003 SP3.

1. In Groupwise, you can go to your sent items folder and there are columns showing whether the sent email has been Opened, Deleted, and Replied by the recipient.

2. Also, you can also delete/retract sent email from the recipients inbox if they have not read the email yet.

Are these available in Exchange/Outlook?

A:Are these Groupwise features in Exchange/Outlook 2010?

I used Groupwise with a previous employer and remebre that.
The answer:
for 2. is I don't think so, you can however when you open a sent message under options choose to resend or recall the unread message and if it's still unread it will be recalled and detelde, you'll receive notification if it was successful or not.
1. No as far as I know not possible. haven't seen the oprion myself, but at the offecie we are one or two versions behind 2010 and don't know what options are available.
Have you tried the Miscrosoft site for information?

I setup and shipped a new Wndows 10 configured desktop/workstation to a professional who is replacing a failed workstation in a small office that has an existing Exchange server setup and their own website/domain [the email accounts are on the domain]. This workstation [Windows 10 Pro x64] has Office Home & Business 2010 freshly setup on it. From reading, declined to touch Outlook before the customer gets it and puts on the LAN internally. There have been obviously a lot of issues just getting the initial Profile setup right: the icon/applet might be missing from the Control Panel altogether, registry keys can be missing or invalid, Outlook may start in Safe Mode unexpectedly. etc. This thread is an example of such diseases and some cures, as of 3 yrs back:

Some of you have been through this and know the ropes. Please point me to a link or something that does the best job of explaining how to do this AT THIS TIME [given all the updates etc to this date] 1] if Control Panel entry is RIGHT, and 2] what to do if that "recommended" approach fails.
I thank you SO MUCH in advance. These poor folks have been through a lot and I want to get them started clean on this try

P.S./edit: is it necessary to first setup "Outlook" as the default Email app in "Settings" ?

Hi there

I got a computer from my work and changed the username, which created a new user in Windows 7 but I can live with that and move the files and so on.

I would like to continue using Outlook and be able to configure my account, I've checked registries and read quite a lot of threads without success, any ideas would be more than helpful.

Over the weekend we installed a new Exchange 2016 server running on a Server 2012 R2 Std VM (through Hyper-V) and connected all of our workstations running Outlook 2010 to it. They stay connected for awhile (maybe an hour or two) but then go to "Trying to connect." The really strange thing is, OWA works, email on phones works and connecting a computer outside of our network to Exchange through Outlook seems to stay connected fine.

DNS checks out fine and resolves like it should. We can ping and browse to the Exchange server fine.

Strange but I get several "Search" errors in the event log when it seems to stop. (Event ID 3036 the content source cannot be accessed) as well as Event ID 35 - Failed to determine if the store is in the crawl scope.

I am at a loss right now so any help would be appreciated!

An issue with Outlook 2007 in combination with my Microsoft Exchange e-mail account was that it couldn't remember the password and I had to enter it every time I started Outlook. This was solved by adding a credential through 'control user passwords2', a workaround which can be found on several sites.

However, this doesn't seem to work anymore using Outlook 2010 with Windows 7. Or at least it seems to work different, but I can't get it to work. Outlook itself creates a generic credential in the form of MS.Outlook:<USERNAME>@<EXCHANGESERVER>:PUT, but on another website I found the form MS.Outlook:<E-MAILADDRESS>@<EXCHANGESERVER>:PUT
It also creates two Windows credentials, one with the username also as server and one with the correct exchange server, username and password.
What should I add to make Outlook remember my password?

I also tried some other workarounds for previous versions of Outlook, but they all didn't work. I tried these:
Stop Outlook/Outlook Express Asking For Your Password Every Time | Windows Vista | Windows Tools, Help & Guides
Outlook 2007 won't save passwords in password..

Does anyone know how to solve this?

(I also posted this problem here:

A:Outlook 2010 doesn't save password (Exchange)

I try itself, it's ferry simpel. Open Outlook 2010.
Than comming the dialoog box whit your nickname and password.
Delete your nickname and password. So that is blank. Than click the "Remember password". And click on the "Save"button. And close Outlook 2010.
Than open Outlook 2010 again. Than is not show more the dialoog box.

Thats all.

Hello everyone,
Want to first start off by thanking you for taking the time to look at my problem with Outlook.

First the background:
I work as IT for our company but I myself am having an issue with a new change in the company that happened last weekend. We moved to an outsourced Exchange server for our emails. Now previously you either setup the email push on a timer or manually did it for sending and receiving. With Exchange, it should be automatic and sync it all between your devices connected to that account on the server.

If I create and send an email on either the Webmail (browser email platform) or my phone, it works like it is supposed to.

The Issue:
When I create an email with my laptop, running Win 7 pro 64 and Office 10, using Outlook, it never gets sent unless I manually push it. It fails to automatically sync and send the email. It also refuses to go out if I set a timer or Rule to push it out.

I have check various areas where it could be but still could use the help. I'm thinking my next try might be to reinstall Office.

A:Win 7, office 2010, Outlook is not pushing outbox with Exchange.

Hello folks,

I know with pop3 account it's quite easy: export everything to .PST and import with new computer. Is something like this possible with Exchange server accounts?

Last time I tried (importing PST into Outlook exchange account) import went ok, all emails were there, calendar notes, tasks... but the moment I was online, laptop started to sync everything from scratch - resulting in duplicate emails.

Reason why I want to do this is to avoid long time waiting for sync everything. In my case (PST file created was 7GB), I need to leave laptop overnight, sometimes 18-20 hours to sync all emails (as I live in EU and our company emails are at Exchange server in US). Internet speed is ok I guess (8MB per second), but I'm losing almost 2 days to sync everything.

That's the main reason I'm pushed back re-installing laptop sometimes.

Is there a way to export all emails to HDD (PST or OST file maybe) and then import everything into fresh version of Outlook without side effects (sync and double emails)?

EDIT: I have looked into this link:

I'll give it a try.


A:Export Outlook 2010 Exchange content from one computer to another?


NOT an easy task!

I have copied .ost file from old computer to new one (into correct location). However starting Outlook gives me following message:

This is exactly what I'm trying to avoid! Have no idea how to make .ost file work with new computer

Have you used Outlook in this manner before prior to going to Outlook 2010? There are additional settings that need to be configured for RPC over HTTP if that is the way you were connecting before. If it was POP or IMAP you need to configure your connection that way.

I have a user who deleted a folder full of emails. We have a retention policy in place and I can see deleted emails to recover, but I would like to recover the folder structure with the emails inside.

A:Recover Deleted Folder Outlook 2010 connect to Exchange

Which version of Exchange are you using? From what I can recall, you might not be able to do this without third-party software. The first try should going into the user's Outlook, clicking on the Deleted Items folder, choose the Folder tab at the top of the screen, and then click on the Recover Deleted Items button. If the folder shows up in there, all well and good. If not, you may have to restore the e-mails and then have the user sort them into the folder again. After all, it was their problem and shouldn't become your crisis.

As an aside: in our organisation we use ShadowProtect for our backups, and also purchased ShadowProtect Granular Recovery for Exchange (GRE) to afford us the possibility of restoring individual e-mails and/or folder structures. This has worked very well indeed, and saved a lot of headaches when users do what they do best ;-)

I am using Outlook 2010 on W7 64 in my home office. All my email accounts are POP3. My part-time work wanted me to use an email account on their Exchange server (2003). I used the email account setup in my Outlook to set it up successfully. Outlook searched out the Exchange server and set up the account.

I closed Outlook and when I reopened it, my Favorites were gone, all POP3 accounts were shuffled in the left pane, all my previous accounts now funneled all emails into one Inbox, and all my Rules were gone. When I tried to redo the Rules, Outlook had changed so that the Rules now applied to ALL the Inboxes for all accounts and did not have the same rules dialog as I had been used to. There was no way to recreate my rules or separate out my POP3 accounts. Now all my email is dumped into one Inbox and I have to manually sort out the messages.

Thinking that the Exchange account was to blame, I deleted the Exchange account, but to no avail. I had to reconstruct my Favorites (no big deal) but there is still no way to redo the Rules and all my mail still goes to the main Inbox.

Is there any way to get back to the way it was? Thanks.

Main email account iin Outlook 2010 is POP3 with 50+ rules for distributing email into folders. Attempted to set up a secondary account which is an Exchange account. No rules needed for this account; volume will b v low.

Rules set up for the POP3 account are being applied to both the POP3 and Exchange accounts. Exchange account is rejecting rules and declaring them invalid. From main email menu in Outlook, going to Rules and then Manage Rules and Alerts, I can see that the rules are being applied to both accounts. I cannot see how to get rid of the Exchange account in Manage Rules and Alert.

I have dropped the Exchange account till I can get advice on this, and will have to restart set up of Exchange account but hopefully with some guidance on how to avoid over zealous application of rules beyond the POP3 account for which they are intended. My Hotmail account is unaffected.

So, to this end I have installed the server and installed a commercial SSL certificate. I have migrated a single mailbox across to the new server. I can access that mailbox quite happily in OWA and in desktop Outlook , all seems fine from that front.

I have a problem with the Exchange ActiveSync element though.

No matter what settings I use I cannot get the mobile phone to sync with the server.

The error I am getting is "You'll need a personal certificate to connect to Error code 85030027"

Now, my limited understanding[1] of our set-up is that we should not need personal certificates. The Exchange ActiveSync system is set to use Basic Authentication which should just be a plaintext username/password combination over SSL.

We've never needed to use EAS before, so I haven't done any further set-up other then accept the defaults. The handset is on our own internet wifi network so we should not need to worry about ensuring we can SSL traffic forwarded from the external IP to the internal machine at this point.

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.

It wouldn't look to professional to have a bunch of individuals see they are part of a marketing mailing.

Any suggestions??

Hi, how can i convert an Access Form into a webpage where i need users input using the webpage in our company intranet.

A:Outlook Distribution List

The title of your post is Outlook Distribution List.

I'm not sure what it has to do with Access.

Depending on the version of Access, you should have "Pages" available. Check out the help file on Data Access Pages.

How can I create a distribution list based on senders of messages in a particular folder? I have sent out an e-mail with voting buttons Yes & No, and want to be able to create a distribution list of all the "Yes" people without having to manually add them one by one...

Any suggestions?

Create a Contacts folder and drag those emails into the contacts folder...I think.

That's how I keep my newsletter subscribers. I drag the received email into that folder, and its a contacts folder.

I find myself frequently deleting one of my distribution lists in Outlook XP when I only intended to delete one member. Is there a way I can create a cuplicate of this list under a different name as a backup (without having to re-create the list member by member)?

Does anyone know how I can set up a distribution list in Outlook 2002 so that recipients can see only the name of the distribution list in the TO box and not the names of the list members? I think that this is a new Outlook 2002 feature.

Generally, everyone puts "themselves" in the TO box, and the distribution list goes into the BCC.

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 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 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.

My boss asked me to put together a mailing list of clients to whom we could send various newsletters etc, so I created a distribution list in Outlook 2000. She (my boss) added, however, that she wanted the email to include an option which allowed the recipients to "opt out," or remove themselves from the list. I have no idea how to even start with this part of the project and could use a little guidance either in actually setting up the e-mail, or in finding someone who could tell me how. Any input would be greatly appreciated!

I’m having trouble creating a distribution list with Outlook 2003 on XP Pro SP3. I know how to do it, have done it before, and just did it with the same rev Office on our laptop under Win7. When I try to create one, I get the attached error msg. My outlook.pst file is not on the C partition (on purpose), but this is nothing new and Outlook knows where it is. Email works fine and the contacts list works fine. I don’t use the address book. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

I am a new user to Outlook 2003. I need to sort distribution list by last name and cannot find out how or if it can be down. I can sort the contact list by last name, as well as first, but the distribution list only sorts by first name which does not help me with a couple thousand entries.

I wonder if anyone can help with a problem I've been having with a distribution list in Outlook. I've been using this list for months with no issue but around a month ago one of the members is not always receiving emails. They are still showing on the list in my contacts, but something seems to be happening between me sending the email as when I open the list in the sent email, they are not there! I've tried deleting them from the list and adding them again but it doesn't appear to have helped. Does anyone have any advice?
Thanks in advance!

Hello, you can try this: remove all the members from the DL, then delete it, also delete the contact that was not getting the messages, reboot the machine and restart Outlook, re-create the deleted contact, re-create the DL and add all the original members to it. (I am hoping it is a short list)
