AddressList.ResolutionOrder Property (Outlook)
Returns an Integer that represents the order of this AddressList in the custom scroll list in the Addressing dialog box. Read-only.
expression A variable that represents an AddressList object.
The ResolutionOrder property corresponds to the position of the AddressList in the list box which is labeled When sending mail, check address lists in this order in the Addressing dialog box and is available by clicking Tools, and then Options in the Address Book dialog box. Note that this behavior is independent of whether Custom is selected in the Addressing dialog box. For example, if Start with Global Address List is selected and the scroll list displays Contacts as the first item, the ResolutionOrder property of the Contacts address list is still 1, even though when resolving recipients, Outlook uses the Global Address List first.
When Custom is selected in the Addressing dialog box, the ResolutionOrder property reflects the order that Outlook uses when resolving recipient names. The value of ResolutionOrder is one-based. In this case, the first address list to be used for resolving recipient names has a ResolutionOrder equal to 1, the second address list 2, and so forth. If an address list is not used to resolve addresses, then its ResolutionOrder has a value of -1. Programmatically, when Custom is selected in the Addressing dialog box, the ResolutionOrder property reflects the actual resolution order that Recipients.ResolveAll or Recipient.Resolve uses.
