Archived from groups: microsoft>public>outlook>contacts (more info?)

An email was forwarded to be by a recipient that has about 300 email
addresses in the cc line. I want to create a distribution list from these
300 addresses. How can I do it efficiently? If I copy and paste into the cc
line of another email, I lose the email addresses and only names remain.
I've tried cutting and pasting into Word and back again, but same result. I
don't want to have to save them one by one!

Thanks,

Open a new DL. Then click Select Members. Open the message with the Cc
list, select the entire list by right-clicking and choosing Select All, then
right-clicking and choosing Copy, place your mouse in the DL's Members
field, right-clicking and choosing Paste. Click OK.

Hi Brian: Thanks for the reply. I may not have framed my question clearly.

The list is not in the CC window. It is under the "Original Message" section.

Example: You get a joke forwarded to you that had been forwarded by another
person. The person who sent it to you did not remove the To and From of the
email sent to him -- it is now part of the original message. Your friend may
write "this is funny" then send it to you.

The original email was not sent to me. It was sent to someone else to then
forwarded it to me. It is the To and From of the Original Message that I
want. I am the "to" of the second generation and the "from" is one of the
recipients of the original email. She could do what you suggest but that
isn't an option right now.

Does any of that make sense to you? Thanks!!

The addresses that get embedded in the body of a forwarded message are in
two formats:
name@server.com and Name , this latter with the
variation "Name"
The only problem in accomplishing what you are trying to do was the
comma-separated addresses, so I copied them to Word, Replaced All commas to
semi-colons, copied all again, opened a new Distrib List, clicked Select
Members and pasted into the box "Add to distribution list". Those without a
Name will have their e-mail addresses for a Name.

But what you said was:

> addresses in the cc line.

If you didn't mean they were in the Cc field, you shouldn't have said that's
where they are.

You're out of luck. The "Cc" string in the "Original Message" section of
the message body is just a string of characters that often have no
associated addresses. If that string contains real addresses and looks
something like this:

name one ; name two ; ...etc.

or

"name one" address1@domain1.com; "name two" address2@domain2.com; ...etc.

or some combination of these, then you can still use the method I describe.
If, however, the "Cc" list name is just a list of "Display As" fields, there
will be no mail addresses associated with them and you're out of luck.
