Remove names from a contact group

Getting email addressed to a group you’re not part of anymore can be annoying. To make sure you don’t do that yourself, you can remove names from a contact group (formerly called a “distribution list”) like this:

  1. On the Navigation bar, click People to view your contacts.


  2. Double-click the contact group to open it.

    Double-click the contact group

  3. Select the names you want to remove from the group, and then on the Contact Group tab, click Remove Member.

    Remove member

  4. Click Save & Close.
