this is really pissing me off.  I just created a new address list, and the bish won't let me add a group by to it.  
I like to use the group by fields at the top and then sort ascend.

this is urgent as i'm about to toss this pos off the roof. :-)

    Can you film it for us on the way down? LOL
    Seriously though - what's special about your address list?
    And are you trying to modify the default view or create a new one.
    Lastly - what version of OL?

    i didn't bring my dvr today, so no filming.

    i don't care if i need to make a new view or modify, i just want it different.
    i thought it would be easy since i just copied my address book and pasted a new one.

    my brain hurts.

    Hi phileoca,

    are you trying to put your addresses into a category ?  If you do that, then you can click on contacts , go to view > current view > by category and those addresses in that category would show up.

    Is that what you are looking for ?
