Dear PC Doctor:

I am on a committee with several people.  We communicate by e-mail, and it works really well.  I have a distribution list in my e-mail so I can write to everyone at the same time.  We just got some new members, and I added them to the group just fine.  But I haven’t been able to remove the outgoing folks without deleting them completely from my contacts.  I want to keep their addresses, even though they’re not on the committee anymore.  I am using webmail from Horde.  Can you help?


Dear Sam:


Open up your webmail.  Click to open your address book.  Instead of clicking on the name of the person you want to remove from the group, navigate to the first letter of group itself.  Find the group in the alphabetical list.  It should be in blue text and underlined.  Click to open that link.  You will get a list of the people on that list.  Each will have a check box to the left of his or her name.  Click in the check box of the person you want to remove.  Then, click “Remove from this list.”  You will get a pop-up box asking you to confirm that you want to complete this action.  Click “OK.”  The person will still be listed in your e-mail contacts but will no longer be part of that distribution list.

Until next time,
Happy Computing!
