Hello,




In Outlook 2007, is there a way to see which distribution lists a


contact is a member of please? We have lots of lists. We want to be sure that


if we delete a contact in a group, instead of just removing it from


the group, that the contact doesn't exist in other groups as well.




Even a way to export to Excel would be ok, if there's nothing else.




Thanks,




- Alan.

No, I'm sorry, that is not possible. This is one reason a lot of people recommend using categories to create dynamic distribution lists instead - you can just open the contact and see what categories he belongs to.

Ok thanks anyway. Guess I'll have to write come add-in code to do it. Categories are ok, but our users prefer to select recipients from the To field, especially when forwarding to a list.

Yeah, I fully understand, I too prefer DLs but managing them isn't fun.
