DistListItem Object (Outlook)

Represents a distribution list in a Contacts folder.

Remarks

A distribution list can contain multiple recipients and is used to send messages to everyone in the list.

Use the CreateItem method to create a DistListItem object that represents a new distribution list.

Use Items ( index ), where index is the index number of an item in a contacts folder or a value used to match the default property of an item in the folder, to return a single DistListItem object from a contacts folder (that is, a folder whose default item type is olContactItem).

Example

The following Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example creates and displays a new distribution list.

Set myItem = Application.CreateItem(olDistributionListItem) 
 
myItem.Display

The following Visual Basic for Applications example sets the current folder as the contacts folder and displays an existing distribution list named Project Team in the folder.

Set myNamespace = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI") 
 
Set myFolder = myNamespace.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderContacts) 
 
myFolder.Display 
 
Set myItem = myFolder.Items("Project Team") 
 
myItem.Display
