    I made a mistake the other day with OE 6 that I couldn't find a simple solution for. It's simple. I created a group address under the WRONG e-mail folder (say directly under the Main Identity folder). But I have created separate sub-folders under the Main folder for two types of groups (permanent and temporary), and really wanted it to be in the temporary groups folder. With Windows, not a problem; just drag-n-drop any file or folder to the right folder. In OE, you can't drag and drop anything (at least I couldn't). So I wound up recreating the group in the RIGHT place, and deleting it from the Main folder.

    In case there's any way to move them to avoid having to recreate them, is there any way to move addresses from one folder to another in OE's address book?

    dk,
    there's a few different ways, basically using some - not so agile - import/export functions

    although it says OE5, the <u>tomsterdam site</u> is a great resource for OE things

    I'm familiar with the tomsterdam site, but there's no answer to this issue there. I'm resigned to the fact that OE is lacking in this area, and I just have to live with it or use something else.
