Exclude some members from email recipients list
Following a query to Dimitri, he suggested I start a post on this, as although some upgrades to the email system are due in the next release, he says the following will not be catered for, and therefore I need to garner support!
Whilst the Seach facility is very useful, in my experience it often includes people you do not want to include in the ensuing Email blast. In my case it was chasing outstanding money, where the Contacts / outstanding balance search beautifully brought up the list, but some members I had already contacted, and they had promised me settlement and / or said they had paid and the cheque was 'in the post!'. In this situation I wanted to be able to not include them in the email, especially as I wanted to word it fairly abruptly - i.e. Pay up or your are Out!!
Apparently in the new release we will be able to 'Add' people to a current search list, good, but not Save the list, nor will we be able to generate a list of email names from scratch and save it, which would also for me, be hugely useful!
Be most interested to know if anyone else would support this, Dmitri says there is no existing post, which I find very suprising, but there again he is 'Chief' - so he should know!!

Quite often I have the need to generate a mail list based on a search, but them remove / add a few members manually before I send. At the moment I can't do this.
So, I might have 170 members who are not lapsed, but before I email them I want to add a few or remove a few.
Hope this is clear.
Thanks for the input, I out this into our analysis queue.
