DistListItem.AddMember Method (Outlook)
Published: July 16, 2012
Adds a new member to the specified distribution list. The distribution list contains Recipient objects that represent valid e-mail addresses.
The following Microsoft 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 objItem As Outlook.DistListItem Dim objMail As Outlook.MailItem Dim objRcpnt As Outlook.Recipient Set objMail = Application.CreateItem(olMailItem) Set objItem = Application.CreateItem(olDistributionListItem) 'Create recipient for distlist Set objRcpnt = Application.Session.CreateRecipient("Dan Wilson") objRcpnt.Resolve objItem.AddMember objRcpnt 'Add note to list and display objItem.DLName = "Northwest Sales Manager" objItem.Body = "Regional Sales Manager - NorthWest" objItem.Save objItem.Display End Sub
