DistListItem Object

Office 2003
DistListItem
Multiple objects

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

Using the DistListItem Object

Use the CreateItem method to create a DistListItem object that represents a new distribution list. The following Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example creates and displays a new distribution list.

Set myOlApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set myItem = myOlApp.CreateItem(olDistributionListItem)
myItem.Display
		

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