5. Click Yes when you receive the prompt to confirm the removal.
6. Click Add.
7. Click Additional Address Books, and then click Next.
8. Click Outlook Address Book, and then click Next.
9. Click OK when you receive the message to restart Outlook.
10. Click Finish.
11. Click Exit on the File menu to quit Outlook.
12. Restart Outlook.
13. In the Folder list, right-click the folder that you want to use with the Address Book (for example, right-click Contacts), and then click Properties.
14. Click the Outlook Address Book tab.
15. Click to select the Show this folder as an e-mail Address Book check box (if it is not already selected), and then click OK.

Follow these steps to create a new distribution list:

  1. Click New from the File menu and select Distribution List, or use Ctrl+Shift+L shortcut.
  2. Enter a name into the Name box.
  3. Click Select Members from the Distribution List tab's Members group for those listed in Contacts.
  4. Select the Address Book by clicking the down arrow under Address book.
  5. Enter the name into the search box to quickly navigate the list, select the name, and click Members.
  6. Repeat Step 5 for each member you want in the distribution list, and click OK when finished.
  7. Click Add New from the Distribution List tab's Members group to add members who don't appear in Contacts.
  8. Complete the Add New Member form and click OK.
  9. Click Save & Close.

Send an email to the newly created distribution list by opening a new e-mail message and entering the name of the list into the To box. You can click To and open the Contact list to search for the name of the distribution list. Write the email message and send it.
