    The menu-item for ceating a new Contact Group has disappeared in the menues.

    According to online-help in Vista Mail and on the Internet this should be
    available,
    and I have used it earlier, but now it has gone ???

    Does anyone know how to get it back

  2. If the toolbar in Contacts doesn't have its normal icons,
    then the folder type for Contacts is incorrect. To fix it:
    Open Windows Contacts. Right-click somewhere in that
    empty white space to the far right. Select Customize This Folder,
    click the little triangle, and from the dropdown list select Contacts,
    then click OK.

    I'm having the same problem - I can add a new contact but not a new contact
    group. I tried your suggestion but there was no "triangle" in customize
    folder...any suggestions ?

  4. I just realized that the web access you are using to view this newsgroup may not allow

    Thank you Gary - it worked ! The contact group doesn't show up in my list so
    I have to do a search for it when I want to use it, but that's OK...at least
    it worked !
