Distribution list doesn't show in contact list


Chris Robertson

First I'm using workgroupshare V2.1 to share my contacts & distribution lists in outlook 2003.
At first, I just figured it was the workgroupshare not copying the distribution list, but when I hit the to button in the new email windows, I can find the distribution list.
So the question is, I know the distribution list is in my outlook, but how does it NOT show up in my contact list?

Another question. Does anyone have a good plugin that shares contacts to everyone on a network?

By "contact list", do you mean when you press To button on a new message? If
you open the contacts folder, do you see the DL?

Some utilities are here: http://www.slipstick.com/addins/groupcontacts.asp

Yes exactly what I said. When I hit the "To" button, I can see the distribution List, but in the contacts folder, I do not.

I had thought the "To" button (add contact window) drew from the contact folder. I wonder how that is possible.
