Mailinglists in Outlook 98:

I'm running a Outlook 98 client.
The server is Exchange 5.5.

I would like to know how to
create mailinglists as a user.

I think this should be easy
but I can't find out how to do it.

Two methods:

1) Add the Personal Address Book to your profile with Tools | Services and keep DLs there.

2) Create "virtual" DLs on demand by simply selecting items in your Contacts folder and choosing Action | New Message to Contacts. You can use a different category for each DL to make this easy. See http://www.slipstick.com/contacts/dl.htm for more details.

I think that we could use the second medhod. I would like to keep all
information on the Exchange - server.
Therefore I don't want to use the PAB.

It's not possible to save DLs in contacts on the Exchange - server?

Does Exchange not support DLs
with external (e-mail) adresses?

Outlook 2000 supports DLs in any Contacts folder, but not Outlook 98.

You can also create DLs in the Exchange Server GAL. Each member, though, must also have a GAL entry. In the case of external addresses, this is a custom recipient. Only the administrator can create new recipients, though any user can be given permission to manage a GAL DL.
