I've got this annoying problem: Want to add an address for a mailing
list, but as it is only a list's address, there's no first name and last
name, so I'm entering only display name and email address. When clicking
OK, the address is dropped without any warning :-(
So, please tell me, which fields I have to fill in to get it saved, is
it first or last name, and which fields are probably also needed???
Peter, on odd occasions, I receive an email from someone that is not in
my address book, and I need to reply!
If I just click "Reply", add my reply, and hit send, when I next check
my address book, that address will appear with the email address entered
as both the email address AND the name (I usually then go into the
address book and change the name to something useful!).
I've got no idea why SM might be rejecting your attempt to add an
address, but the next time you do try to add it, why not give it a first
and last name "Mail" and "List" would do.
But it's just occured to me that if your address book was marked as
"Read Only" it would not save addresses, so use your Windows Explorer to
locate the address book (which I think is abook.mab) and have a look at
it's properties to see if it is marked as Read Only. You may have to
expose (unhide) all your sub-folders first:-
