I've been having problems with getting my list of friends to appear on the Inbox/Compose section, using windows explorer. I now have it figured out. Under the menu bar Tools for explorer I have selected Compatibility View. My list of friends now appears.
However, when playing with this, I tried sending Elaine an I love you message, which apparently did not send. However, if any of you got such a message from me..... oops. It was meant for Elaine.
