Outlook 2000

Currently running Outlook 2000 at work, and require to make a Distribution list.  The Dist List already exists, so I had a friend email the list to me.  I was hoping to be able to simply copy the list and paste it into a new list on my system, but no luck.  If I try to save, I only get to save the original sender to my contacts vice the Dist List group. Is there a way to do this, or must I add each individual separately?

Thanks in advance!

Dave

When sending out, outlook breaks the distribution list. There are also account inherent settings in a contact. You definitely need to save the addresses first in contacts and then add these to the distribution list. Dont forget to press. Update now.

Just a thought: can I copy all the names from the email that was sent to me, with the Dist list, and some how paste them into my own dist list?

There is a trick. Once you get the email which has all the contacts, create a new folder in contacts and move all the existing contacts to it by cut and paste. Your contacts will now be empty. Then disconnect the network/phone cable and in outlook, do a reply to all for that message. Then send that email. Since on connectivity, it will be in the outbox. Check the contacts to see if the data....

....is in the contacts. If yes, delete the email in outbox. If not, the setting to add people you reply to contacts is not selected in outlook > tool > options. You could also select the folder that you created under contacts in the latter setting. Then reconnect your network cable. You can do the DL part afterwards. Sorry about the two parts.
