Whenever I re-install my file I lose my distribution list.  Is there any way to keep it in tact?

    Hi judithjsk,
    DO you mean to say that the distribution list you have created is getting deleted? What file are you referring to? Do you use an exchange server? What version of Outlook?

    Let me know if it works for you! ;o)

    I have outlook 2003.  When I save my contacts [pst file] and then try to re-install my contacts, my distribution list is blank.  I have asked microsoft and they say distribution lists don't copy but that doesn't make sense to me.

    I am also confused about how I can save mail I have sent to another hard drive so that I can retain a complete file of relevant mail.

    "re-install my file"  <--- you need to explain what you are doing here. and why you need to "re-install"

    "how I can save mail I have sent to another hard drive "  <--- again, a better explanation of how you did this or what you are trying to accomplish is required.  (ie. a second .pst file or are you trying to archive, backup, ...)

    sometimes I have had to reformat my hard drive and a couple of times I have bought a new computer.   I was able to copy my contacts but not my distribution list.
