cant expand a distribtion list to edit members

In outlook 2003 if I composed a new email, and in the “to” field I added in a distribution list, it always used to have a + sign next to it where I could expand it and then it would list all individual email addresses in that distribution list. This came in handy if I needed to email 95% of that distribution list, as I could just expand so it listed them all, and then delete the members I didn’t want the email to go to. Is there any way to do this in 2010?

Hi pma111,

Outlook 2010 has the same functionality as 2003 in that you should be able to expand the DL by using the '+' sign. It sounds like this is an issue localised to the user or workstation.

Have you tried logging into a different PC to see if you have the same issue? Also, is it limites to one DL or do you have the same problem regardless of the DL you're sending to?


Thanks,

Chris

Its the same on all our PC's, and theres definately no expand + sign next to the group in the to field... I've tried a handful of groups and always the same, no +expand+

Hi pma111,

Is this something that has just happened recently, or has the feature been missing from when you first started using Outlook 2010? I know the feature can be turned off using a registry hack or applying it through a GPO but I assume you'd know if that was the case (unless this was someone else in charge of the policies)?

What version of Exchange are you using?

Hi,

Its happened since we started using 2010. I am not in charge of the policies, but out of interest, why would someone turn that feature off via a GPO? Whats the benefit in doing so? Is there anyway to tell from on the computer if a GPO is turning that expand feature off? How would we go about doing so?
