I am trying to creat distribution lists. I select ALL of my contacts and add them to the list then one by one I have to erase the ones I dont want on the list. Is there a faster way to get this done?

I have approximately 3000 contacts and only want the ones that have email addresses in the contact listings. How can I do this other than selecting them one at a time and hitting delete??

Please help and thank you in advance

The Select Members dialog for a DL is the Outlook Address Book view, which contains all electronic addresses. Your post is vague. Why would you create a DL by selecting all your Contacts and all their electronic addresses? Why not select just the ones you want?

Be advised, that DL's are a deprecated feature that do not work reliably. No DL should ever contain more than a handful of addresses. Microsoft wants us to use Categories now instead of DL's.
