Hi, is it possible to

1) create a contact list on SharePoint, with various metadata columns

2) have a button\function which uses Nintex to read the list, and

      2.1) Launch a new email in Outlook

     2.2) Pre-populate the recipients from the Outlook list

   2.3) the user can then create their email as required.



We have various groups and committees which have a large contact list in SharePoint. This list is managed outside of I.T. We are hoping to mail-enable this, rather than go through an exhaustive process of creating Distribution Lists in exchange. By adopting the SharePoint approach, we can ensure the management and ownership is kept within the correct department.
