    Default printing a list of contact names from KMail address book

    Hello, everyone. I am using KMail v. 1.9.9 (using KDE 3.5.9 "release 49.1" open SuSE 11.0).

    Can anyone give me instructions for printing out a list of the names in a mailing list I created in the KMail address book? If possible I'd like to have it print in alphabetical order sorted by last name.

    Thanks!

    Open KAddressbook and select "File / Print". You can then select some output
    and formating options.

    Does the standard printing menu not work for you? :-?

    Sorry, I just don't see how to select all the names on the mailing list and then print them. I can print one name at a time, but not more than one.

    What to do?
    Thx

    Open konsole and launch kaddressbook from there by typing:

    ***
    hpc02@stthpc:~> kaddressbook
    ***

    Then go to File / print and follow the wizard. It will ask you what contacts
    do you want to print and other nice options :-)

    I saw that the first time. How **specifically** do I get KMail to print the names in a mailing list I've created -- preferrably sorted alphabetically by last name.

    I do not see any option to print a mailing list. I see nothing in the wizard that lets me select a mailing list.

    Thx. for your help.

    O.k. I missed the "distribution list" part, sorry :-)

    I was thinking about printing "plain" contacts from kaddressbook, which is
    an easy task, but know nothing about how to get printed the contacts inside
    a distribution list in kmail :-?

    In fact, it seems the contacts pertaining to lists are "pointed" in some
    special way to the real users. Take a look
    under "~/.kde/share/apps/kabc/distlist" file

    Yes, I knew about that file and wondered as you did if there were some way to get the items in that file converted into a printable list of names.

    Some time back I had written to the authors listed under "About Kadddress book" but not gotten a reply. Maybe I'll try again and see if I have better luck this time.

    Thx!
