...How do I Import a distribution list from an email attachment
I am trying to save a distribution list from an email that someone sent me.
I don't know how to do this without having to type in all of the contacts
individually and then manually creating my own distribution list. Is there
an easy way to do this?
What version of Outlook are you using?
What type of attachment is this? Excel document? Just a list of addresses in
the body of the message?

A Distribution Group doesn't automatically get mail-enabled. Did you

You can't as Outlook can't see that you are in the distributionlist. What
are you trying to accomplish (and perhaps why?) and are you in an Exchange
or home environment?

Is the distribution list from your contacts folder or the global address

folder, it is very possible that a full item sync hasn't been performed and
you are just looking at the header of an item when in Outlook is in o...make a distribution list from a named category(in contact list)
I've created a category name from certain contacts...can I use that category
name to directly create a distribution list? What happens now is when I'm
adding to the dist. list, the contact list shows up, but the category "field"
doesn't show up in the list, so its hard to remember which contact is in
which category. Thanks -David
If you are using categories, why be redundant and use a DL? Drag the
category to your inbox and your distribution is set.

...Outlook 2007 Cumulative Update: is the limit on the number of members of private distribution lists finally gone?
I think I read that the Outlook 2007 Cumulative Update released a
couple of weeks ago removes the limit on the number of members that a
distribution list in a user's Contacts folder could have - does anyone
know if that it is indeed correct? I can't find any direct reference
to it on the web so maybe I misunderstood.
It's very important to us because we're migrating from another mail
system where users had private lists with hundreds of members and
we've had to tell them to use categories instead.
