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!!
Just in the process of moving our UK Sailing Club onto WA, and have exactly the same need, so would be most interested in following this thread.

Yes, count me in for that too, we have a few members who insist on having mail rather than email.
