Do you lose the Contact Distribution Group, through creation of a new profile? Outlook 16 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Team

    Hope you all are doing well!

    I am associated with support and administration of Google Apps/Portal.

    Quite a few of my users like to keep usage of Outlook configuring Google mail in it.

    The question arises as for one of the users, in terms of some other solution, need to create a new outlook profile.

    User has personal Contact Distribution Group created in Outlook client.

    Now will that be lost in order to create new profile?

    If yes, then shall we export & save the Distribution Group in .csv format as back up and import it back to Outlook post creation of the new profile?

    Requesting your inputs, should there be any easier and convenient method to address the concern.

    Warm Regards

    Have tried exporting the Contact Distribution Group in .txt file (As a .csv was not an available format).

    Converted the .txt file to .csv by opening and "saving it as" in Excel.

    Now whilst importing the .csv file back in Outlook, unable to navigate to the file saved in my system.

    Awaiting Response.

  • Hi,

    You can easily export and import your Contact Distribution list by following the steps below:

    1. Open the Distribution List
    2. File > Save As, and save it on your PC as a .msg file.
    3. Email it as an attachment to whomever, or copy it to any machines.
    4. The recepient left-clicks the attachment and drags it to the Contacts button (lower left) and drops it there.

    Hope it helps.

    Regards,
