Distribution lists are groups of email addresses used for sending of collective email. Simply use a special dialog in Kerio WebMail to complete desired email addresses and save them under a common name. Whenever sending an email message to such a group, simply enter the distribution list name instead of filling in individual addresses.
Distribution lists are helpful if email is often sent to a group of addressees. For example, it can be a group of people with whom you often communicate in your work or outside the office, as shown at figure 2.15 Distribution list (it is a certain alternative to mailing lists or to group addresses).
A new distribution list can be created in any contact folder, as follows:
Open any contact folder.
Select theoption on the toolbar.
This opens a dialog where a new distribution list can be created (see figure 2.15 Distribution list) and where email addresses can be added.
Enter a name for the distribution list in the Name entry.
Add contacts to the distribution list. Theand buttons can be used for this purpose:
The dialog contains the following items:
Fill in a string that will be used as the search criteria. It is possible to search by first and second names as well as display names (full names) or by email addresses. Simply enter the first letters of the first name, second name or user name. Click on Search. The first 200 contacts matching the string are displayed (or less). Usually, the list of contacts found is narrower, so it is easy to choose the contact we have been looking for.
You can also use contact list to select existing contacts. Unless a particular string is being searched, contacts of all folders set in Kerio WebMail's user settings are displayed in the dialog.
To add a contact to the distribution list, select it with the mouse pointer and click on. Individual contacts as well as contact groups (i.e. user groups sharing one email address) and other distribution lists can be added to a distribution list.
One or multiple contacts can be chosen in contact lists (by holding the
Ctrl key and selecting items by the mouse pointer) and then added to the distribution list by the button.
If this option is enabled, the search will not be performed in any public contact folders. In such a case, only private folders and subfolders are searched through. Enabling of this option may speed up the search under certain circumstances, especially where public contact folders are large.
When done, simply click onto close the dialog.
If you want to add a contact which is not saved in any contact folder yet, use thebutton. In the dialog just opened, enter the first and second name and email address:
Enter first and second name of the new distribution list member.

Enable this option to save member information also in the Contacts folder.
A note can be attached to any distribution list. It can be for example a description of the group or another information. The note can be defined on the Notes tab of the distribution list dialog.
Save changes by clicking.
Once created, distribution lists are saved in the contact folder where they can also be managed.
Contacts, groups (group of users with a shared email address) or other distribution lists can be later added to a distribution list. Two methods can be used to achieve this. First, open a distribution list and add an address in the same way as when creating a list. Second, select contacts in a contact folder, in the Selected contacts menu select the Add to distribution list option and confirm settings by clicking on .
