Thanks for the great feedback! If I’m understanding you correctly, you’re making four distinct but related suggestions:
1. Improve the contacts list by allowing custom fields (some of your ideas are geographical region, whether they’re still an active customer, which salesperson they work with)
2. Improve the Email Marketing feature by allowing you to bulk-add contacts to a mailing list after filtering by those custom values
3. Track whether any emails were undeliverable (and add that as another field on the contact?)
4. Enable bulk-updating contacts using a spreadsheet / database / PowerShell.
All of these are great suggestions and we’ll be considering these in the future.

I agree this needs fixing yesterday or a vital opportunity will be lost. Microsoft you have come so far. I love the Business Center, until we tried to test out the Email campaign. Importing contacts from Outlook worked fine, from CSV not so great. But, once they were in the system there was no way to categorize or "list them". Metadata is important. Please fix asap before my team goes back to Mail Chimp, CC, or Aweber.
