    I don't think I've asked this before, but I don't remember getting an answer, and the issue resurfaced this morning. I used AOL from the early 90's until about a month ago when I went to broadband. One of the nicer features of AOL's e-mail is that when you put a group into the "To:" box, all of the INDIVIDUAL addresses showed. That made it possible to first put in the whole group, the selectively delete ones to which you didn't want the message to go.

    With [email protected], I'm using OE (6.0) and have been frustrated by the fact that when you click a group, the only thing that shows up in the To: box is the group name, so there's no way to remove some addresses from the group for just that message...or is there, and I just haven't discovered it yet?

    once you click send (to the outbox) or save as (draft)
    go to the folder and open it again, then you'll see the individual adressees
    delete as needed
    just make sure there is a ";" and a 'space' between each address
    ie
    [email protected]; [email protected]; etc.

    Thanks for the tip, Joe. Too bad one has to go through that to edit the addresses before sending. But I guess every system has it's quirks.
