Share a distribution list with others

You can send a distribution list to others by including it in a message. The recipient can then save it to their Contacts.

To send a distribution list:

  1. Open a new message.
  2. Open Contacts.
  3. Drag the distribution list from Contacts into the message body.

 Note   You may need to adjust the message and the Contacts window so that they're visible at the same time.

  1. Send the message.

 Note   If you want to send a distribution list to someone, and the distribution list contains members from the Global Address List (Global Address List: The address book that contains all user, group, and distribution list e-mail addresses in your organization. The administrator creates and maintains this address book. It may also contain public folder e-mail addresses.), be sure that the recipient of the distribution list also uses that same Global Address List.

To save a distribution list sent to you by another person, do any of the following:
