Default How do I send a distribution list by email?

I want to send a distribution list to another email address using Outlook.
The online help suggests going to insert/item. My drop down under insert has
no item option.

Create a new message in Rich Text format and drag the DL to it as an
attachment.

I just tried to retrieve this DL from the computer I had sent it to. No
attachments arrived with the email.

Use the Insert Item command.
It's there.
You did not specify your Outlook version or editor, so I can't tell you
where.
Did you look beside the attachment icon? (it looks like a paper clip).

Thank you so very much! You are exactly right; The insert/item is beside
the attachment icon. I understood it was under the insert command. Again,
Thank you!

Default How do I send a distribution list by email?

I was able to email the distribution list successfully via the insert item
command, but what does the recipient need to do in order to save the list and
be able to use it?

I just found the answer to this and tested successfully:

The message recipient simply has to left-click on the attached file, then
drag & drop over to the "contacts" icon. The list is then added to that
persons 'contacts' list.

This isn't working for me using Outlook 2003. I have made sure I am using
Rich Text Format. I am using the drop down arrow to select Item next to the
paperclip. What can I be doing wrong or what setting can I change? This is
very frustrating. Thanks.

Sorry, to my knowledge I am doing it according to all of the instructions, as
follows:

Open a new message in rich text format.
Address it.
Click the down arrow next to the paper clip and select Item.
Select the distribution list,
Send the message and ask the user to drag and drop it to their Contacts.

I've tried this with two individuals outside my institution and both have
told me all they can see is my contact information.

Thanks.

"Isn't working" provides no information. State precisely what you are doing,
where the DL resides, and what happens.
