Outlook 2000: When clicking on the rule “people or distribution list” within the rules wizard, it gives me a list in my contacts file. The following happens:
1. I can choose individual contacts as the distribution.
2. If I create a distribution list within contacts and choose that entry and then return, Outlook 2000 rejects it telling me I can’t use a distribution list that is part of my personal contacts for a rule.
3. If I create a distribution list outside of Outlook 2000, I am not able to specify that path in the rule.
How do I create a distribution list that will be accepted by the rules wizard?
