cannot for some reason use my 'groups' function on my emails

Posted

Thunderbird has just revamped itself and now I cannot send to the groups that I have set up on my address book The machine demands an email address in the box and all I have of course is the name of the group

Please don't tell me that I have to enter each person separately each time????????? That could take hours There must be a better solution and I would value some help here

This has been reported as Bug #1060901. If you have an account on Bugzilla, please consider voting for that issue.

Several other people have sent in the same support request as you, noting this happened after they upgraded to version 31.1.

The exact error message is: XXXX is not a valid e-mail address because it is not of the form user@host. You must correct it before sending the e-mail.

This happens when your mailing list description includes several words separated by spaces.

Although not ideal, these workarounds should let you use your mailing lists until a proper fix is implemented:

  • While composing an email open the address book and select the list you are trying to send to, highlight all the names in the list and drag them to the To: box. This uses your existing data without modifying it.
  • Replacing the blanks " " between the words in such lists' descriptions with an underscore "_". This requires modifying your mailing list(s) description(s).

Can you still use it via Address book. select the mailing list and click on Write This does not use the group name but instead inserts all contacts as separate. you will then need to alter all the TO's into Bcc's.

however, this has been reported by several people. Please read all the conversation at this link:
