Netscape 4.x has long had the ability to create a hierarchy of e-mail addresses in the address book. One group or folder of addresses could contain subgroups such that, to send mail to all addresses in each subgroup of a group would only require referring to the highest level group by name. Both Netscape 6.x and Mozilla 1.x have apparently lost the ability to handle groups. A user can neither import a hierarchy of groups from an ldif file exported by Netscape 4.x, nor can he or she create new groups within groups in these new applications' address books. For some unknown reason, somebody decided to drop a capability that was already in the address book when the current generation of Mozilla-related browsers was released. Why? The code already exists. I have been reporting this as a bug, NOT a new feature, since Netscape 6.0 alpha was released. Why can't you put back a capability that was already there? Meanwhile, I am looking around for another web capable e-mail/browser suite, because it took me hours to organized my address book into a meaningful hierarchy, and I'm not about to flatten it into a disorganized mash just so that I can use Mozilla 1.x or Netscape 6.x.
