    I thought I had posted this but cannot find it with a search so I will try again.(I may have previewed and forgot to post)

    My problem: If I create a "group" within Outlook Express by the normal method comes out sorted by first names. The names in my main address book are sorted by last names. I added the names to the group from the main address list in order by last names. I can change the sort in the main address by the view/sort by/ function. I can’t seem to find how to resort the names in a group.
    Thanks much!

    Well, maybe you can answer this: How do the "groups" get their order to begin with? I added the addresses directly from the main address list, which was in order of last names. This is small matter but I have a large group created and people wonder why I put Al Zig before Zachary Able.
    Cheers!

    The groups get there order as you surmised . . . alphabetically by First name.

    As to what others wonder, don't worry about it, or put the new group in the BCC field. Either method will solve the problem.;)

    I have used the blind copy function and I like it but some of the members don't understand why only they got a copy, which of course, is wrong . Anyway, Thanks for the answer.
