Easily split a contact group (distribution list) in Outlook

Let’s say there is a contact group with hundreds of email addresses in it, and you may need to put / split some email addresses into a new contact group. However, it seems impossible to achieve it directly in Outlook except saving the contact group as a text file, splitting the text file, and then creating new contact groups with specified members. Too tedious! Here, Kutools for Outlook’s Split to contact group (Contact Group) feature can help you quickly split a contact group or distribution list in Outlook at ease.
