jctservice :

Hi there! I'm Joey, and I'm happy to assist you today!

jctservice :

Are you using the new "windows live" version of hotmail now?

jctservice :

If so, this is the procedure. they have renamed "groups" -- they are now called "categories"

jctservice :

To set up a group of recipients in Windows Live Hotmail:



  • Select Contact list from Windows Live Hotmail's left-hand navigation bar.

  • Now select Manage categories under Categories in the left-hand navigation bar.

  • Click New.

  • Type the desired group name under Name:.

    • This name acts as a nickname when addressing messages.

    • The nickname must be unique in your address book (a group cannot have the same name as another group or another address book entry's nickname).



  • Press Enter.

  • Type email addressees or existing address book contacts' names under Members: to add them.

  • Click Save.

jctservice :

To send a message to the new "category" (aka group") -- create a new message, and simply type the "nickname" in the TO, CC, or BCC line.

jctservice :

If you have any further questions, please feel free to let me know… Just REPLY here at any time.

Thanks for using JustAnswer and have a great day!

After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents.
