Upgraded Contacts interface

We’ve upgraded the Runbox Contacts section today, making it much easier to manage contacts:

  • Expandable contact group tree in the left-hand pane
  • Support for multiple groups per contact
  • Improved Add/Edit Contact window

We’re also planning to implement drag-and-drop functionality.

Any feedback welcome! 🙂
