Question

How do I send a block email?

by whatapalaver / April 6, 2012 2:17 AM PDT

I want to send one email to several people with one click. Their names and email addresses are in my Contacts list and I want to lump them together. I don't want to send a separate email to each person.

Thank you. whatapalaver

Clarification Request
Did you try a group or list?

Problem not solved

Dear Heinz Taschabitscher,
Thanks for the reply but it has not helped. None of the steps you have described have appeared. I have had no previous experience with Windows Live Hotmail and I am wondering why you have given me advice for a Windows Live Hotmail problem when I am using Windows Live Mail. Until recently I always used Outlook Express with Windows XP but now I have Windows Live Mail with Windows 7. Should advice for Windows Live Hotmail problems also solve Windows Live Mail problems?

I can't help it that Microsoft has been playing hot potato.

Windows Live is one marketing name and WIndows Live Hotmail is just an account you might have.

Should advice for Windows Live Hotmail problems also solve Windows Live Mail problems?

Sure, we want to create a mailing group or list. And that's the problem. Microsoft can change their apps on a whim so yesterday's answer in some step by step may fail but the CONCEPT remains solid.

Let's try for a "Windows Live" only link that does not mention Hotmail?

I can't see any mention of Hotmail so let's hope you get the concept of groups down pat now.

I surrender

Dear R.Proffitt, Thank you for replying but the instructions in http://www.freeemailtutorials.com/windowsLiveMail/addressBooksAndContacts/createContactGroups.htm are useless. When I press Ctrl+Shift+C I get a large 'Add New Contact' window that does not have a descending list with Contact; Group; E-mail message; etc. There is nothing, anywhere, about groups, so I have decided to throw in the towel and not waste more precious time. I wanted to create a couple of groups to help a friend but it is not needed now.
Thank you for trying. whatapalaver

Keep in mind that Microsoft can change this email app without notice and may have different versions for different countries and OS's.

If you need GROUPS and if Windows Live fails, take another look at Thunderbird.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
