The question of creating contact lists in the People App was raised in July, 2013. It is now the middle of November of 2013 and we have the Windows 8.1 update. Lots of good stuff in the update. But when asked by several of my friends, "how do you create a mailing list from within the People App in Windows 8.1", I have to embarrassingly answer, no luck. I know that it can be done on in THAT People App. But I want to manage my contacts on my machine with my local People App. I would have expected the 8.1 update to have this fix... no luck. Can anyone shed some light on when this might happen, or if it will happen?? Thanks to anyone who might be able to help.
