Sort distribution list

I'm looking for a way to sort a large distribution list. I know there are arrows but when you have about 800 databases in a distribution list bring something from the bottom to the top takes a while. There used to be a "community" tool that sorted distribution lists but I can't find it again. Am I missing something or is there no way to sort w/out using the arrow to keep clicking the up/down arrows and manually sort?


I guess I should add that if the distribution list consists of all that servers databases you could just remove them all and re-add them since they are alphabetically listed on the left side. But, we do have some distribution lists that are a subset of those databases and that is when it gets a lot more time consuming to sort.
