Adding a new contact to an existing email group WITHOUT adding them to current email contacts?

I was unable to find any answers to this question after spending considerable time searching Comcast and the internet.  I think I did find a way by trial and error.  If anyone can answer this question in a better way, I would greatly appreciate it. This is what I accomplished, but it seems crazy to me:

Opened  "address book"

Clicked on "collected addresses"

Created a contact and placed a last name in the last name box and added them to an already created group - closed the contact.

Clicked on "Goups" - opened up the group email list I had previously created, searched for the new contact by last name and clicked on "edit."   Finished inputting info and closed.

This created a new contact in the email group only and didn't add them to my regular address book.   But I still think it's convoluted.  Is there a better way?

Actually no.  The way you described is the only way I know of to do that.  The Appsuite software is designed to use the basic address book as the source of entries for groups, and if you delete a contact from the address book, it will also be deleted from any group it's in.  Your work-around will do the trick, but as you say---bit of a job.
