Editing an e-mail distribution list in Outlook desktop app

You must be the owner of the list in order to edit it. To find out which lists you are an owner of, please see: How do I edit an e-mail distribution list in Outlook on the Web? 

In order for a person to be in the Global Address List, they must have an active UWin account listed in the University of Windsor directory. It is not possible to add external addresses to the Global Address List.

If you make these changes to the Global Address List, they will be reflected immediately, and will be synchronised with the "offline global address list" of other users within 24 hours.
