Contacts

For some time I have used 'Contacts" on my iMac too send to groups, without the email addresses showing. But for some reason, my main list, quite a lot, will not do it. Small lists do it no bother. I cannot find out why this has happened just recently. Went on a cruise for a few days and came back to this problem. (Not to mention a chipped windscreen, a dead toaster, wife's craft lamp has died and it's raining.)

Any ideas, re the Contacts?

Re: Contacts

Has the main list changed recently, got bigger? Prior to it not working. Has anything else changed? Software update (been a few recently)
Do you get an error message for a clue?

Re: Contacts

Main list not changed. No error message, but maybe an update. I wouldn't have though an update would have changed it so that it effectively does not work.

Re: Contacts

Have you tried recreating the list and adding contacts to see if it fails again that way?
(I don’t use groups so not familiar with process around it)

Re: Contacts

Thanks guys, problem sorted. I suspect that Apple had updated and that changed some of my settings.

Re: Contacts

I’m not an Apple computer user, but I’ve come to watch out for Microsoft Tuesdays.

Most Windows and Office updates are applied on Tuesday, and rarely does a week go by when nothing stops working on Tuesday/Wednesday. Yesterday it was the iCloud addon for Outlook, when my iDevice and desktop diaries both developed lives of their own and started duplicating appointments which they declined to delete. All solved with a stop and restart of the addin and a couple of reboots...

Re: Contacts

It's appalling when technology tries to be our master instead of our servant.

Re: Contacts

I gave up trying to sync my Windows 10 PCs with iCloud, they simply don't get on with one another. My contacts live on my iPhone and if I need info on a contact I just pick up the phone. My e-mail client has its own contacts list so the Windows "People" app remains unused. It's horrible, IMHO, like most of the Win10 built-in apps.

Re: Contacts

Other than occasional transient problems after Windows updates, I have very uncommon issues between Office 365 Outlook and iCloud, in fact.

The Desktop is so much easier for performing some tasks than frigging around with one of the iDevices, and I don't want a Mac, so I have come to depend on them working together, and amazingly reliably they have done for the past 5 or so years.

That's going to bu@@er it up properly, of course, now I've said that.
