Hi guys,

I have an email with a bunch of address' I want to keep and add to a distribution group. I have created the group - but cannot find any obvious way of adding contacts to it.

I know 99% i'm being dumb. A quick step-by-step would be great. Thanks in advance. As per the title, I am using mail 5 and address book 6 (I preferred the old one if i'm honest)

Drag the contact(s) over to the group, it adds them but does not duplicate.

Cheers:)

Thanks tigress, but that method doesn't work for me.

I can drag people from the address book into a group, but not directly from an email. There must be a way of doing it other than trawling through my entire address book and adding them individually.

Thanks

Can't anybody else replicate this issue?

Thanks

Bump this. I've been trying for ages to drag and drop a set of email addresses in an email into a group I've created in Address Book. What happened to the vaunted "intuitiveness" of Apple? Seems the only way to create a group is to go through every single name in the address book.
