During your work with Outlook, you might receive distribution list or contact group from others. For saving this distribution list into your Outlook contacts folder, what would you do? Actually, it is very easy to save received distribution list or contact group in Outlook. You can browse the below tutorial for more detailed information.


Save received distribution list or contact group with Copy function

With the Copy function, you can easily save the received distribution list to contacts folder.

1. Click to display the received email with distribution list in the Reading Pane which you want to save in the contacts folder.

2. Then right click the distribution list and click Copy in the right-clicking menu. See screenshot:

3. Get into the contacts folder which you want to save the distribution list. Then press the Ctrl + V keys to paste the selected distribution list.
Then the received distribution list is saved in the specified Contacts folder.

Note: If the received contact group is in the Rich Text format email, you need to double click to open the message first, and then copy and paste it.


Save received distribution list or contact group with dragging

Besides the above method, you can save received distribution list to contacts folder by directly dragging the group to the Contacts in the Navigation Pane.

1. Click to display the received email with distribution list in the Reading Pane which you want to save in the contacts folder.

2. Click on the distribution list, then drag it to the Contacts section in the Navigation Pane. See screenshot:

After dragging, the distribution list will be saved to the default contacts folder in Outlook.

Easily add contact group members from emails' senders or recipients in Outlook

Normally, we can copy a sender or a recipient from an email, and then add it as a contact group member with Add Members > From Address Book, and it seems no way to add multiple emails' multiple senders or recipients into a contact group in bulk. But, with the excellent Add to Groups feature of Kutools for Outlook, you can easily add multiple emails' senders or recipients into contacts groups in Outlook with several clicks only.
