Default How do I send a distribution list by email?

I want to send a distribution list to another email address using Outlook.
The online help suggests going to insert/item. My drop down under insert has
no item option.

Create a new message in Rich Text format and drag the DL to it as an
attachment.

I just tried to retrieve this DL from the computer I had sent it to. No
attachments arrived with the email.

Use the Insert Item command.
It's there.
You did not specify your Outlook version or editor, so I can't tell you
where.
Did you look beside the attachment icon? (it looks like a paper clip).

Thank you so very much! You are exactly right; The insert/item is beside
the attachment icon. I understood it was under the insert command. Again,
Thank you!

I was able to email the distribution list successfully via the insert item
command, but what does the recipient need to do in order to save the list and
be able to use it?

This isn't working for me using Outlook 2003. I have made sure I am using
Rich Text Format. I am using the drop down arrow to select Item next to the
paperclip. What can I be doing wrong or what setting can I change? This is
very frustrating. Thanks.

Default How do I send a distribution list by email?

Question for 2007. I was able to send the DL, but when it was receieved and
they tried viewing the contents of the members an error message appeared
saying "Could not find contact. it may have been deleted or moved form its
original location. Would you like to reove it from the list?"

I select No, double click on the contact and I get the properties of the
email properties. I would like the receipent to see all the info pertaining
to that contact.

Any ideas?

How did you create the DL? In what information store did it reside?
How did you send it?

You need to understand DL's. They contain names and electronic addresses.
Period. Nothing more. They do not contain other Contact data. If they remain
in the original information store, they contain a very fragile link to the
Contact Records from which they were created. Since you broke that link, you
get the error and the behavior you see.
