Don’t ask why but Mailing Groups / Distribution Lists are called Categories in Windows Live Mail (very confusing as categories mean something completely different in MS Office)
To set up a Category / Mailing List…
Click on Contacts (bottom left)
Click on Category (top left)
Note: Categories are the same as Groups/Distribution Lists
You have now created a new Category (e.g. MyList)
There are a few ways to populate the list with contacts
Left click and drag the Contact that you want to add to the Category and drop it in the name of the Category where you want it included.
Left click on Copy Contact to and select the Category where you want it included.
Remember Category is the same as Group/Distribution lists. Who knows why they keep changing terminology!
Going back a few steps, some of you sharp eyed folk may have noticed that when we created our new Category, the frame also gave us the opportunity to add contacts to that Category from the Contacts List.
This method combines the two from above.
To use the Category / list
Create an email as normal
Click on To: to bring up your Contacts
Hope this helps
