Create a distribution list from addresses in the 'To' list
I belong to a social group, and our co-ordinator sends out an email from
time to time with all the latest addresses in the To list.
I already have a distribution list for the group, which then needs to be
checked through and updated. Is there a simple way of transferring those
addresses into my own distribution list? I'm using Outlook 2002.

Each time i try to enter a number range, for example, 8-
10, in Excel, it constantly re-formats it to a date. If I
change the formatting to "General" it turns it into a
random number, usually 38209. I would like to turn off
ALL auto-formatting, but that's probably asking too
much. How do I disable this frustrating feature?
When you enter "8-10" in a cell, that's not strictly a number but Excel
thinks you mean a date so converts it as such.
A date is a number and in your example the number 38209 represents August 10

if a mail is replied from a user created sub folder of the inbox, the

properly though, it's just that Outlook sets internally sender =

This happens on a Win 2000 machine with SP4 and all updates, the other
clients use Outlook 2000 or XP and there is no such problem.
