7777

Hello, is there a way to bulk extract the individual email addresses from an

existing Distribution List Membership group and import/copy them into

another new slightly different group instead of having to go in manually

one-by-one when adding/assigning members in the 'Modify Members' section?

Thanks in advance.

R click and drag the DL to a new location. If you want it in the same

location, just rename it.

Yes. Is it an outlook DL or a GAL DL?

You can get a list of members by forwarding an Outlook DL as a vcard.

http://www.slipstick.com/tutorials/dl/dl.asp

To get the gal list, add it to a message, expand it and copy the names.

Paste in a message, notepad, where ever and edit. Outlook will correctly

resolve the names.

Thanks all for the responses so far, much appreciated. But our new DL needs

each of their individual email addresses to start off with which as in time

individual members would then need to be added/removed so having the other

whole group DL in there won't give us granularity. I've also tried

copying/pasting and then expanding them but it just pastes their names and

not their individual email addresses which I need to put the bulk of these

into the new DL, so still researching this.

Sorry Diane, I noticed your vcard link mentions Outlook 2007 as I have only

Outlook 2003. And ours looks to be a GAL DL.

When you paste the names in the new DL (and actually add them to the DL),

outlook will resolve them to the addresses in the GAL.

Still searching around for my situation here, I am familiar with vba code so

if someone perhaps could point me to some sample code that would be helpful

also.

I ended up adding those individual members manually since it was only under

200 members and was spending more time researching than adding them. I did

try to initially paste them like your video clip demonstrates Diane but the

paste option was disabled and kept giving me that beep of not allowing me

and not sure if it was because ours is an existing G.A.L. and technically

not a create new D.L like the video showed. But certainly would look into

that again if like thousands or millions of members needed to be ported

over next time, thanks all for the help, much appreciated. Cheers :)
