Is there a way to copy, export, or send a distribution list to some one via attachment? I have a distribution list that I want to send to some one so he can have the same people I have in his address book. I wasn't sure how to do it in MS Outlook 2002. I'm greatly appreciate any help.

Thank you,

ljCharlie

all you have to do is highlight it from your address book, go to Actions,
then Forward. It will attach it to your email.

BUT....

The person you are sending it to will have to do the following to get it to
work properly.

1. They will have to have all the addresses placed in the list, actually be
contacts of their own to send the email. So, what you should do is send
all the contacts as well. (Highlight them, Actions, Forward. :))

2. When they receive the list, they will need to open the attachment,
select File, Copy to Folder, and Select Contacts. Otherwise it will never
save into their contacts.

Distribution Lists in outlook were meant to be used by the inidividual, but
with a little workaround, it can be shared. Hope this helps.
