    Hi All,

    Is it possible to have have multiple contact or address folders in Windows Mail. ie Similar to Outlook where one can have personal and public folders?

    Regards,

    Doug.

    I am not familiar with how Outlook handles folders but
    you can have multiple groups in Windows Mail.

    Create Contact Group

    Thankyou for your prompt reply. What I am after here is typically a personal address book and say a public one. Contact Groups are only for bulk emailing certain people. ie. very inflexible.

    I have since found out Windows Mail is only a very basic program with a lot less functionality that Outlook Express. Microsoft now have a free download for Windows Live Mail which has all the functions and MORE of Outlook Express.

    Regards,

    Doug.

    For some reason Microsoft chose to change the address book
    of OE into the mess now called Contacts.

    Otherwise, Windows Mail is almost identical to OE.

    And you are correct that Windows Live Mail might be more to
    your liking with an address book like OE. Windows Live Mail
    is going to be the replacement for Windows Mail in future
    versions of Windows.
