This is a .NET interface derived from a COM coclass that is required by managed code for interoperability with the corresponding COM object. Use this derived interface to access all method, property, and event members of the COM object. However, if a method or event you want to use shares the same name under the same COM object, cast to the corresponding primary interface to call the method, and cast to the latest events interface to connect to the event. Refer to this topic for information about the COM object. For information about the method and property members of the COM object, see _DistListItem. For information about the event members of the COM object, see DistListItemClass.

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).
