Chapter 15. Communicating with Outlook > Creating a Distribution List

Creating a Distribution List

A distribution list is a collection of contacts usually grouped together because of a specific task or association and then identified by one name. You can use a distribution list in your e-mail messages, task requests, and other distribution lists. When you address an e-mail message using a distribution list, you are sending the message to everyone whose address is included in the list. Because a distribution list often contains many names, it provides a faster, more efficient way to address an e-mail message to multiple recipients.

Create a Distribution List

Click the Contacts button on the Navigation pane.

Click the Actions menu, and then click New Distribution List.

Type the name for the distribution list.

Click Select Members to select names from your Contacts folder.

If necessary, click Add New, and then enter the display name and e-mail address for the person you want to add to the list. If you want to add this person to your Contacts folder, click the Add To Contacts check box. Click OK.

Click Categories, check the category or categories you want to apply to this distribution list, and then click OK.

Click the Save And Close button.
