Adding/Removing Names from a Distribution List

There are two ways to add or remove names from a distribution list: using Webmail, and using Outlook. We recommend using Webmail because the interface allows you to see who is in the distribution list before you add or remove names from it.

Add/Remove Names Using Webmail


  1. From your Webmail homepage, click Options in the upper right-hand corner of the screen, and select All Options from the dropdown menu.

  2. Click Groups in the sidebar on the left.

  3. In the list titled Public Groups I Own, double-click the group for which you would like to edit the membership.

  4. From the Group window that appears, click Membership to open the dropdown menu.
