Okay, I have an AT&T/Yahoo email account as well so I will be showing you these following steps with my own account. Note that in my examples I'll be blocking out my contacts' personal information.

STEP 1.

Since you logged in using your att.net email account and are in the Contact List, the first thing to do is to go through your list and pick out which contacts you want to assign to a designated group.

STEP 2.

After choosing your contacts, click on the option to the right named "Add to Category" (Screenshot Attached Below. Click image to enlarge)

STEPS 3 & 4.

Here is where we can name the group of the selected contacts. Be sure to check the box you named then click "Done" (Screenshot Attached Below. Click image to enlarge)

STEPS 5 & 6.

That is how to assign contacts to a group. To view the group, click on the "View" drop-down and select the group you just created, ie. Art Group, then click on the group's name. (Screenshot Attached Below. Click image to enlarge)

Hi mplsmac

Apologizes for the delayed response. I'm curious as to which program you're using to organize your Contacts list. Are you trying to organize your Contacts in "Outlook" on a laptop? or the "Contacts app" on an iPhone/iPad? We just need a little bit more information on which program it is and we'll be glad to assist. Thanks in advance!

Hi Morgan_b:

I'm not a teckie so bear with me. I'm on At&t powered by Yahoo! Mail.

I'm looking at the left upper part of the Page and it says in descending order -

Inbox, Drafts, Sent, Spam, Trash and in an area under that It says Contacts.

Right now there are 77 in the Contacts grouping with family, art club, etc all

mixed in.

When I was at wi.rr.com (TWC) I had a different segment for each group within

the Contact major heading.

At TWC I was able to have different catagories by just dragging and dropping

names into areas I wanted them in.

I don't want all contacts in the same bin. When I had them separate in my old

account I could call up people in my

art club and have all names in the "To" and the "Cc" section of an email. I

can't do that now without taking each one individually and it's annoying.

Thanks for responding

Hurrah! Voila! Thank you just loads. I did everything you suggested and I have

my several catagories all separated and I couldn't be happier. I saved a print

of your instructions in case my memory fails. Thank you again!
