There are three ways to share a distribution list:

  • Give rights to your entire Contacts folder
  • Put the distribution list in a Public folder (Windows Outlook users only)
  • Send the distribution list to someone

To send the distribution list to someone:

  1. Open a new message.
  2. Click the message body.
  3. Do one of the following:
    If MS Word is your e-mail editor, then drag the distribution list from "Contacts" into the message.

    If MS Outlook is your email editor, on the Insert menu, click Item. In the Look in list, click the folder that contains the distribution list that you want to send. Distribution lists are saved in the Contacts folder by default. In the Items list, click the distribution list that you want to send, and then click OK.

  4. Send the message.

Note: If you want to send a distribution list to someone, and the distribution list contains members from the Global Address List, be sure that the recipient of the distribution list also uses the same Global Address List.
