Try clicking to the "to ..." button just to the left of the "To Bar".
You should see your category contacts there with two little pawns from a chess set just to the left of it. Click on it once and then click on the
"to->" button just below and "+ abc", or whatever your category name is, will appear. Then just click ok.

Be aware that non-business email services tend to limit the size of categories to 20 or 25 generally. So you might have to make your categories fit what you email can take. It's a restriction of the service not the program.

New laptop has Windows Live Mail instead of Outlook, which I am used to.

I run a singing group, and have created a "category" - that is what Live Mail calls a group - in order to communicate with them all.

However, when I put this in the "To" bar, it does not seem to recognise it is there and refuses to send it.

Anyone else had this problem? Any bright ideas?
