Distribution list can't be saved anywhere

I create a new distribution list and click “save and close” and it disappears, never to be seen again. I have an old one that comes up when I click To: on the email address bar, but nowhere is the one I just created. If I do a “save as” from the file menu it will save to my computer , desktop, docs etc. as a vcf file but not the email client. I should be able to at least save it and have some why to select it for distribution.

It may be that you are trying to save it to a read-only calendar.

Before you click on Save & Close, select an appropriate calendar folder from the drop-down options.
