The following Microsoft Visual Basic/Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example creates a new DistributionList object and adds a recipient to it. If the specified recipient is not valid, the AddMember method will fail. To run this example, replace 'Dan Wilson' with a valid recipient name.

Sub AddNewMember()
    'Adds a member to a new distribution list

    Dim olApp As Outlook.Application
    Dim objItem As Outlook.DistListItem
    Dim objMail As Outlook.MailItem
    Dim objRcpnt As Outlook.Recipient

    Set olApp = New Outlook.Application
    Set objMail = olApp.CreateItem(olMailItem)
    Set objItem = olApp.CreateItem(olDistributionListItem)
    'Create recipient for distlist
    Set objRcpnt = olApp.Session.CreateRecipient("Dan Wilson")
    objItem.AddMember objRcpnt
    'Add note to list and display
    objItem.DLName = "Northwest Sales Manager"
    objItem.Body = "Regional Sales Manager - NorthWest"
End Sub
