Outlook - Distribution List Problem

  Charlie Babbage 23:08 01 Aug 2008

A friend has sent me a distribution list in a folder called 'Newsletter.msg'

How can I get that list into the Contacts section of Outlook? I have tried sending myself an email with the file as an attachment and then dragging the file into Contacts but that does not seem to work unless I'm doing something wrong!

I've also tried opening the file and highlighting one name but I then the find 'Select All' of View is not available so I cannot copy and paste into a new Distribution List opened in Outlook!!

Any suggestions would be appreciated

I think that the problem may lie with the fact that it is in a folder. What format is it in?

... I was trying to drag and drop the file from an email into Contacts which did not work.

However, I then accessed the file direct, dragged and dropped it into Contacts and BINGO! I can now access it.

Many thanks for your input
