Editing a dynamic distribution list

If you are the owner of a dynamic distribution list, you can update information associated with it (e.g. name, owning users and membership rules). Following an edit to a distribution list, this will have to be sent for approval again. On approval, the distribution list is updated and the changes will apply to all future emails sent to this list.

To edit a dynamic distribution list:


You cannot delete distribution lists. If you need to delete a distribution list contact your Local Administrator

1. Sign-in to the NHSmail Portal using your .net credentials

2. Click Profile in the navigation bar at the top of the screen and Click My Distribution Lists.


3. Type the name of the distribution list in the search box

Refer to the Searching for a Distribution List section for more information

4. Click on the Name of the dynamic distribution list to open the Edit Distribution List page

Approved distribution lists will show a status of active. Distribution lists yet to be approved by your Local Administrator will show a status of pending.

Although the Edit Dynamic Distribution List page (shown below) looks slightly different to the Create Dynamic Distribution List page, the steps to edit a dynamic distribution list are the same as when you create one (with the exception of Directory Properties). Refer to the Creating a dynamic distribution list for more information on editing each part of a distribution list.

The Edit Dynamic Distribution List page includes a Status box which indicates if the list is active/ inactive, the dates it was created and last updated



When all editing is complete:

Click Update at the bottom of the Edit Distribution List page





Clicking Update even if you have not made any changes will send the list for re-approval.  Please choose Cancel to close the Edit page without making changes
