Support for contact lists (not contact groups!)
Support for contact lists from Outlook.com on the web.
I know contact groups (...@groups.outlook.com) are supported, but support for contact LISTS is also needed.

I love the new Outlook but it is a real drag having to switch to the old one every time I want to send a group email.
JR Disbrow commented
Need this also. Please & Thanks! We do to many emails a day using contact lists to switch the the new outlook until they add this.
Dave Allen commented
Have to use OWA to send manage groups

I cannot use New Outlook until Contacts allow me to import the extensive Contact List I have created in Old Outlook. I look forward to this feature being available so that I can explore the new features. Until then, I have to remain in Old Outlook.

There does not seem to be any way to email a saved group of people.
I agree. Support for Contact Lists is very much needed. I have several Contact Lists that I maintain locally. There's no need to have these in Active Directory, as these lists are specific to my needs. Please bring them back.

My Group Contact Lists which are saved in local folders in Old Outlook are no longer accessible. And Group Contact Lists cannot be created in the New Outlook. I know that 365 Groups is another way to email groups of contacts, but this is an overkill as I don't need all the other functions that 365 Groups provide.
Please restore Group Contact Lists.
How can this be omitted??? This is vital to everyday workflow in Outlook.

In Windows Outlook, we regularly send emails to carefully curated contact groups we have created. These do not show up in Mac Outlook, are not importable and, of course do not sync. I'd love to see this implemented.

Agreed - I use this feature several times a day. I will need to use the old version of outlook until this is included.
please add this feature back. It's unbelivable that it's missed. Thanks
please bring this back URGENTLY - it is hampering my day to day functionality - the ability to uncheck' files on my computer' so I can make groups - totally painful not to be able to do it.
Chris Horton commented
It's crazy that this isn't already in. Please add this back to the New Outlook. I love all the other features but this one missing is making it very challenging to use as our Office Admin haven't opened Groups yet and I don't want to use groups just for a small group of ppl I need to email.
Please bring this back. I need my contact list to email groups easily. Why would this even be taken away.

contact list is important for business. please return this feature.
Another VERY BASIC feature of an email app that is not included in this product. 🙄
Thomas Albertsson commented
I also miss this function. I had to switch and go back to the old version because I need this function.

Desperately need Contact List support. I regularly need to email different groups of clients with updates, etc. (these aren't marketing emails, so something like MailChimp really isn't appropriate / is overkill!) and it's killing me to have to manually enter the email addresses each time. I've resorted to maintaining a list of addresses in Evernote and copying them in to Outlook every time I need them. It works--but it's a massive pain, and not the way it should be done!
Still waiting for server synced Contact Lists in 2020...
(Been waiting for this during Entourage 2004, 2008, Outlook 2011, Outlook 2016 and now we are on 2019 and counting)
