Managing Distribution Lists In Outlook

Modified on Wed, 12 Jul 2023 at 11:18 AM

In order to manage a distribution list, you must be granted permissions to become an owner of the group. Please reach out to IT support if this is required.

  1. Log into your email through

  2. Once logged into your email, click on the settings cog in the top right corner of the window as shown below:

    Some browsers may require you to choose "View all Outlook settings" as a second option.

  3. A settings window will now open to show you all Outlook options. Please select the following options as shown in the photo below:

    1. "General" tab
    2. "Distribution Groups" tab
    3. "This portal" link

  4. This will then open the Distribution Lists portal. Please be patient as this can take some time.

  5. In the window that opens, you will then see distribution groups that you belong to and distribution groups that you own or have the rights to manage.
  6. Double clicking on a list will open a new window allowing you to modify that list (see who belongs to the group, change owners, etc.). You will need to click on the "Membership" tab on the left to be able to view current members and add new ones.
