Windows 7: Mailing List within WLM Contacts

Mailing List within WLM Contacts

Hi Guys,

I have just purchased a new system with Windows 7 Premium and have downloaded Windows Live Mail, as my mail client.

Is there a way to formulate a Mailing List of say... 10 contacts, with it's own Category...say like Execurive Staff for instance, but I don't want these contacts to show in the "All Contacts" folder.

Every time I enter a contact in my new category (which I use infrequently), the name also appears in All Contacts !!!!

I don't want this to happen and it didn't happen in Outlook Express. I was able to create categories (Groups), but the names within, stayed within that folder, until I required them.

I have many private Contacts (friends, family etc) in my All Contacts folder and now all my new work contacts are in there as well!!.

This is very frustrating.

Is there a solution?

Thanks and Regards.

Categories aren't folders in the usual sense. They're more like tags. In fact, when you export them to import them into a new install of WLM you loose the tags if you are not signing in. Since the "signed-in" contact list remains on the website it won't loose the tags until you delete them. So the easiest "solution" is to sort everything into categories, always sign in, and never look at "all contacts". (Just look at the category of interest at the time.)
