Contact List Management
There are several hundred of us now on this blog (woo hoo!), which brought me face to face with a new challenge in email management: the number of recipients on the BlogofficeXP list exceeds my ISP's capacity to send bulk email. That’s a great problem to have! But day before yesterday, after sending the most recent post, I needed to find a way to cleanly divide the distribution list so that my service provider wouldn’t balk. Once I figured it out, it was a snap. Here’s the process:
- Contacts view, double-click your distribution list to open it.
- Open the File menu and choose Copy to Folder. The list is copied to an email message (if you scroll down you’ll see the distribution list icon at the bottom of the address list).
- Drag the icon to your Contacts window. (You may want to email it to yourself so that you have a complete list tucked away somewhere in addition to your Address Book.)
- Double-click the list to open it; change the title, delete or add names; then save. Voila—the new list.
Btw, last night I bought a new USB Flash drive to test out...it looks very cool. Rumor has it that people walk up and down the hallways at Microsoft wearing these things on cords around their necks. The USB drive has now officially replaced pocket protectors for those of us interested in geek fashions. I'll let you know how it looks...er, I mean works. :) k
