If you have a group of people whom you regularly communicate with by email (and that group of people are not collected in a Team or managed distribution email), you can create your own contact list. You can include Contact lists in messages, task requests, meeting requests, and in other Contact list. 

Creating a Contact List

  1. Go to Outlook. On the left side, look for the People icon and click on it.
  2. From the "New contact" dropdown menu, select "New Contact list".
  3. Type in a name for your list in the "List name" textbox.
  4. Type in either the name of the person (if they have a Hendrix webmail account) or their full email address (if they are not).
  5. Select the contact and repeat step 5 until you have all desired contacts added.
  6. Click "Save" and your distribution list will be created.

Adding and Removing Contacts From A Contact List

  1. Click “People” on the Navigation bar.
  2. Click on "Your contacts" and choose "Contacts".
  3. Find your contact group in the Contacts list.
  4. Double-click or highlight the contact group and then click Edit at the top of the page.
    To add members: 
       Click “Add Members” and add the contact or contact.
    To remove members: 
       Click on the "x" icon next to the contact's name.
       If you accidentally delete a contact, click on the undo button that shows up next to the contact's name.
