Is it possible to expand a distribution list in Outlook 2007 to become individual contacts also? I don't mean for the recipient list of an email, but in the contacts folder.

I don't know if this will make any difference, but is the contact list local, or a Microsoft Exchange contact list? Are you using Exchange, or stand-alone Outlook? Can you add a screenshot and better describe how you want it to work? –  KCotreau Jul 5 '11 at 15:36
    
I don't think Outlook supports this, because individual distribution lists are held as an actual "Contact". The only way to expand the distribution list is to actually double-click it to view the entries. –  Breakthrough Jul 5 '11 at 15:43
    
@KCotreau The contact list is local; it's my Contacts folder already. Outlook is connected to Exchange at my organisation. –  James Jul 5 '11 at 15:43
    
@Breakthrough I suspected that might be the case. Outlook isn't exactly forthcoming in letting you access your data - there so many more things I'd like to do with my email. –  James Jul 5 '11 at 15:47
    
@James, what did you need to see the contact list entries for? Maybe there is an alternative solution to your original problem... –  Breakthrough Jul 5 '11 at 16:03
