I have a folder hierarchy of




Public folders


> ..All Public Folders


> .....Dept


> ........Distribution List




Distribution List has a DefaultItemType of "olContactItem" and a DefaultMessageClass of "IPM.Contact".




I have scanned the folder chain and have a Folder object for "Distribution List" if that helps.




I wish to take a list of Contacts and create a distribution list in "Distribution List", of course :) I understand that a DL contains only a name and email address but my requirement is that the user be able to see all of the contact information when clicking on a DL member.




Any help to accomplish this is appreciated. My attempt is at the end of this message.




Thanks,


Scott




Code:
            Outlook.DistListItem oDL;
           Outlook.MailItem tempItem;
           Outlook.Recipients oRecipients;
           bool resolveRet;
 
 

           oDL = oApp.CreateItem(Outlook.OlItemType.olDistributionListItem)
               as Outlook.DistListItem;
 
 

           tempItem = oApp.CreateItem(Outlook.OlItemType.olMailItem) as Outlook.MailItem;
           oRecipients = tempItem.Recipients;
           oDL.DLName = "Associate Email Distribution List";
           foreach (Outlook.ContactItem oContact in contactList)
           {
               oRecipients.Add(oContact.Email1Address);
           }
           resolveRet = oRecipients.ResolveAll();
           oDL.AddMembers(oRecipients);
           oDL.Save();

I'm not sure what you're asking. If you double-click on a member of a DL

when the DL is opened that should open the contact representing that DL

member. You do need to double-click to open the contact.

When you have the contact from your list you need to create a Recipient

object to add to the DL. You can either use the NameSpace.CreateRecipient()

method to do that or you can create a dummy email and add the contact

information to that to create the recipient object by using

dummyEmail.Recipients.Add().

Once you have your recipient from the contact you use that to add a new DL

member.
