In all the versions of OE the I have used it has never been possible to put names from my address book into contact groups. I have created various groups from the main list but when I delete the transferred names from the main list they are also deleted from the new group..Am I trying to do the impossible or just something wrong?
I have checked Help Files and here are the relevant extracts. Seems OE does not provide the option you are looking for.
"To delete a contact from your Address Book
In the list of contacts, click the one you want to delete, and then click Delete on the toolbar. The contact name is also removed from any groups it is in."
"To delete a contact from a group
In your Address Book, double-click the group name. In the Group Members list, click the name you want to delete, click Remove, and then click OK. The contact is removed from the group, but the individual entry for the contact remains in your Address Book."
