Description

5 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64; rv:20.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/20.0
Build ID: 20130409194949

Steps to reproduce:

I am using Thunderbird after importing my files and address book from Microsoft Outlook.




Actual results:

All my contacts are in the Personal Address book and contacts basically in one folder.

How do I break down this folder into separate categories such as Customers, Vendors and miscellaneous contacts?

When I highlight an individual contact and either attempt copy or cut the option Paste is not available.

I cannot work out of a single address list of contacts as they are separate categories and the program will not allow moving contacts from the main Personal Address book to individual address books or lists.  


Expected results:

I should have been able to highlight the desired contact, cut and paste in a new created sub folder.
