Deleted a Distribution List

Post by matthewR »

I created a distribution list in Outlook and I accidentally deleted it. Is there anyway to get it back? I am thinking not but maybe there is someplace deleted groups go where you can get them back.

Press Ctrl+6 to activate the Folder List.
Click on the Deleted Items folder.
Do you see the distribution list there? If so, drag or copy/paste it to the appropriate contacts folder.
Regards,
Hans

I can't find it there. I looked at an old email that had the distribution list and highlighted and copied the names and thought I could make a new distribution list and paste the names into it but I can't seem to do that. Do you know a way to create a new distribution list where I can paste the names into?

If you create a new distribution list and click Add Members..., you can copy/paste a list of names/e-mail addresses separated by semi-colons into the Members box at the bottom of the dialog:
