Windows 7: Making groups in Windows Live Mail

Making groups in Windows Live Mail

Hi. I'm trying to make a group in Windows Live Mail, so I can send an email to a group of people very easily. So what I've done so far is went into Contacts, and made a new group, which I labeled what I want.

Now, I have a .csv file with all the contacts that I want to send to. So I went to import the .csv file, but it imports everything to "All Contacts", the default group. There's too many to add them over one at a time, so is there any way I can just update it using my .csv file (or convert it to some format that this would work)?


Quick edit: Using this guide is what I was following, though it put the contacts into the wrong group.

That is not exactly how you create a group in WLM.
In WLM, it is called Category, not group. ( don't ask me why they changed the terminology).

Here is how to create a category for distribution mailing list...

Open WLM > look to bottom leftcorner, find and click Contact icon.
Name:  Image 4.png
Views: 655
Size:  5.0 KB

Click Category > you are now on a Create a New Category window > type in the category name > select the addresses you want > click Save.
You are done.
A category is created. Next time you want to send mail to the " group '", just type the name of the category you created into the To field, and you are ready to send.
