    I would like to switch from Outlook Express to Thunderbird as my mail
    client. The problem I am having is when I import my address book from
    Outlook Express to Thunderbird, it will not copy the "groups" (refered to as
    "mailing lists" on Thunderbird) to Thunderbird's address book. Or rather it
    copies the group headers, but with no contacts attached to the groups. It
    looks to me like I would have to manually retype in all the contacts that I
    designate to the various groups I have set up, which would take an
    incredibly long time. Any suggestions?

    My operating system is Windows 98 if that makes any difference.

    Drag addresses from the address book's list in the right pane and drop
    them on the mail list name in the left pane.
