Can't see list of e-mails in "To:" field of e-mail

I often need to send e-mails to our singing group. Sometimes my Mac's e-mail remembers old e-mail and periodically I have to delete what it remembers to make sure it picks up correct e-mail from my Contacts.

In the past, when I enter a list in the "To:" field, it showed the list of name/email destinations. But now, all I see is the name of the list.

How do I see the list before I send it?

If the group is shown in your email but you want to see the contacts instead, click the arrow next to the group name, then choose Expand Group.

Hello,

Check this setting in Mail > Preferences

Let us know if that is it,

That is checked on my computer. I decided to uncheck it and check it again right now, and that didn't fix the problem. I'll uncheck it and reboot and check it, in case there's a bad plist that needs to be overwritten.

OK,

Try making a new group and add a couple of addresses. See if the new one works properly.

Hmmm...

Maybe there is an entry in Mail > Window > Previous Recipients called affinity Singers? If so, try and delete that, then try again.

I did that before sending the e-mail when I discovered that I couldn't verify who was on the list. That guaranteed I would use the Contacts list (I think).
