Windows 7: Need Parent Folder for Numerous Categories in Live Mail Contacts

Need Parent Folder for Numerous Categories in Live Mail Contacts

Im trying to keep my personal business and personal emails/contacts separate in Win Live Mail. I prefer Outlook Express where I could change identities and see address books and emails only pertaining to a specific account. I keep forgetting to toggle the account to the desired account when using Live Mail currently.

I figured how to import my old groups for my business into Contacts. I would like to group all these groups under another group or folder, so I can name it Business and also have one for Personal, so when I need to access Business email addresses, I can open up that folder or group, and select a group within that group/folder to send the email too. I use these groups to send a monthly email too. I want to insure that I keep the Business emails separate from Personal emails, and each group in my business address book contains 30 addresses, and I have numerous groups.

How can I move existing Groups to another Group Name or Folder, so I can keep them in one area so life is easy? If I can't do this, Im afraid I have to find another mail application because this is a deal breaker; besides the fact that separate identities no longer exists (life was easier with Outlook Express). If I can't do what I want shortly, I will have to purchase Outlook 2010 which seems to be able to do this.

Summary: Want a Parent Category or Folder that can have a number of Categories (Groups) under it; for example, a Folder or Category called Business with a number of Categories (literally called Group1, Group2, etc. where each of these groups contains a number of contacts) as children under the parent Folder/Category

Thanking all in advance of replies.
