Updating distribution list


You can add members to a distribution list (contact group) in Outlook if you want to include more people so that you can easily email all of them at once. You can import contacts that you already have set up in your address book or you can add members to the list by their email address, which is useful if they don't need to be in any other contact list but this one.Tip: If you don't have the distribution list yet, see how to make a distribution list in Outlook for easy instructions.When you create a distribution list in Hosted Microsoft Exchange, you are creating a group email address.When someone sends an email to that email address, the email is automatically sent to all the members of the distribution list.



In this guide, the relevant timings are explained and instructions are given in how you can directly force an update and resync, which can be very handy when troubleshooting or when you work in an Exchange environment which sees a lot of user mailbox mutations.This means that in the worst possible scenario, an update to the Address Book won’t become available to the user until 48 hours after the change.This situation however is extremely rare since the default maintenance time on Exchange is at AM and updates and downloads are usually performed during working hours.Even though Outlook is the last in the chain, it is often the first level where the troubleshooting takes place as usually this is where the request is coming from.

And since this website’s main focus is on Outlook, it makes sense to start with Outlook as well ;-).

The command for the manual update procedure can be found here: Outlook will automatically download updates only unless the size of the changes is larger than 12.5% (one-eighth) of the total OAB size.
