Experts,

I'm sending an email to a distribution list in Thunderbird, but I can't seem to figure out how to expand the list in the "to" field so I can delete some of the entries.  Ideas?

Hi there,

I don't think you can do this, but what you CAN do is, open the Address Book window, and select/deselect various members from lists, and simply drag the selection into the To: field of the compose mail window.

I'm using Thunderbird 2.x and I'm able to do that quite happily.  Are you sure you're doing it correctly?

Please take a look at the attached screenshot that shows you...

My bad.  I was trying to drag it over the "write" icon.  Too many things at once...
