sending list of addresses (Vista)

  palinka 11:00 03 Apr 2009

I often need to send email addresses to friends . Using XP this was easy - I would copy and paste from my address book into an email (or even into a word doc which I then sent as an attachment). On receipt they would right click the address and "add to address book".

This doesn't work with Windows Mail in Vista.
Has anyone a solution, please?

It works okay for me when I just copy and paste the email address into the email, palinka. Right-clicking on the address after the email arrives, gives me the option to "Add to Contacts".

only just noticed that this thread was still unresolved; I HAVE solved it and realise that I didn't explain the problem clearly enough - the problem was not so much friends being able to add addresses from a list to their address books but me being able to send such a list of addresses. To do that I find I have to go into mail Contacts, double click the name to reach properties, then click (or double click) again - as if to change the details of the address- and only then can I copy and paste that address into an email to send to my friends.
Long-winded compared with OE method; but at least it is possible.
