Creating a group


To Create a Group

You can send a message to a group of people by creating a mailing group (or "alias") containing their names. Then, you just type the group name in the To box when you send messages. You can create multiple groups, and contacts can belong to more than one group.

In the Address Book, select the folder in which you want to create a group, click the New button on the toolbar, and then click New Group. The Properties dialog box opens.

In the Group Name box, type the name of the group.

You can add people in several ways to the group—and in some cases to your address book as well.

To add a person from your address book list, click Select Members, and then click a name from the address book list.

To use a directory service, click Select Members, and then click the Find button. Select a directory service from the drop-down list at the end of the text box. After finding and selecting an address, it is automatically added to your address book.

To add a person directly to the group without adding the name to your address book, type the person's name and e-mail address in the lower half of the Properties dialog box, and then click Add.

To add a person to both the group and your address book, click New Contact and fill in the appropriate information.

 Repeat for each addition until your group is defined.
