The answer to your question is, no there is not a limit on how many
(certainly more than 50) contacts can be in a group. My first thought
is to be sure you are running a more current copy of Thunderbird, at
least 5.0, that's what I use. Thunderbird 6.0 does not support the
current version of Lightning, the calendar plug in.
If you are synchronizing your contacts with another source, such as
Google Mail, then the synchronization program may be the problem because
the update on the other end does not work. I have had that happen

It is easy and it's free! Not suitable for Midrange.com, but for a list of
a couple hundred it is great!

I broke the list down into several groups.
When we find an old alum, I add them as a contact and then try to copy them
to one of the groups (I have four  so far). Occasionally, though, even
though it looks like the contact was copied to the seledcted group (no
messages), the contact does*not* get added. So Itry another group and the
copy usually works - eventually.
I was just wondering if TBird has a limit to the number of contacts that
be part of a group? I keep the list at home and am at work right now, so I
can't count the number of contacts in each group until this weekend.
