Outlook Express Address Book

by ojmintz / August 25, 2012 12:22 PM PDT

The thing I like so much about Outlook Express is the address book. It allows me add sub groups to the address list, then I can put a name in the sub group and it doesn't automatically appear in the main group
unless I copy and paste it, or I can put it in another sub group and it still doesn't appear in the main list.

Then I can have a name it 2 sub groups and the main list and delete it from one and it doesn't automatically delete all the others.

This has been extremely important to me for years and I have not found another mail program that will with those features. As I do volunteer work for our local police department and other organizations it is of the utmost
importance that I keep the PD mail list separate.

Hope you know of another program that will do that. One that would work> with LINUX also would be SUPER
Thanks Jack Mintz

Then you are not going to be happy.

Nothing works like OE so you may have to run OE. To do that has been discussed for a long time so I won't discuss that.

However the top concern you seem to have is a feature you find in mailing list managers.

The address book is my main concern. The rest of Thunderbird and several other programs would be OK, would take a little adjusting is all.
