Check out Search Folders -- they're a way to create a group or subset of 
your database.

1.Can you create a group of predetermined tasks and assign it to Con

I'm looking for a way to create a group of tasks that I can set up and then 
attach to a contact.  For instance, if I need to perform 8 tasks for each new 
sales prospect I enter into my Outlook.  One task might be to phone them 7 
days from a start date, and then email them 16 days after that, and then send 
them a letter 1 week after that.  This is possible in contact managment 
software like ACT!, but I don't see how I can do it in Outlook.  Does anybody 
know if this is possible or if there is an add-in that I could buy to make 
the task management piece more powerful?

2.Assign an action to a group of contacts

Is it possible to assign an activity to a group of contacts (e.g. a list of
contacts in a specific category) by filtering or searching by the category
then inputting details of one activity (e.g. a journal entry) but gets
linked to each contact? Thanks

(Outlook 2002)

3.Creating assigned tasks, that have already been assigned.

Is it possible to create a task that is already assigned?

What I mean is if you issue the .Assign method then Outlook wants to 
effectively send out messages to each of the assignees asking them to 
accept/decline the task, I don't actually want this to happen, I want 
Outlook to think that it has already sent those messages and the task has 
been accepted by X number of the recipients.

Any help would be apreciated

My brother suggested I try this so here goes...

I upgraded to a new computer at work, and did manage to transfer my contact
list from the only computer, to the new computer via an export...


it didn't transfer my "group contact lists"....

is there a way to do this?? and I'm new to this newsgroup stuff, so if you
