-------------------------------------------------------Hi carl,

Thanks, that is exactly what we need. I thought that there must be a way
to do this via GP but just could not for the life of me find it.
We use OL 2003 so no problems there, although i might have to double check
that everyone is on Outlook 2003 SP2
