I am using Outlook in an Exchange environment and continuously get the following error,
Failed to initialize distribution list object. Unknown member type

This is very frustrating; please let me know who to make the software work.

Thank you

When exactly do you receive this error message? When you open Email Address Collector? When you attempt to extract from a distribution list?

Try to keep Outlook open and connected to the Exchange server when you are about to extract via Email Address Collector from a distribution list (especially if it's a global list of the Exchange server).

The errors happens when I try to extract from my Inbox in Exchange while connected to the Exchagne SWerver or a backup PST.

Can you do a detect & repair job on that mailbox? On Outlook 2007, you have the Office Diagnostics tool located under the Outlook Help menu.

I did a repair using the SCANPST and still have the same problem

I am having the same problem. I am running xp as an admin. Trying to export from my contacts in outlook 2007 on an exchange server.

I have tried all of the steps listed in this thread.

For GrayCapital & twolf, we have just released an update which is supposed to fix the distribution list error related to Exchange folders. So please give it a try. Here is the direct download link: http://www.emailaddressmanager.com/eac_setup5.exe

You can install it over the existing Email Address Collector installation (just choose to upgrade when the setup wizard asks you).

Please drop us a line here even if it works, so other people can use this solution too. Thank you.
