Create a mailing list

If there is a group of people that you email on a regular basis all at once, you can create a mailing list.

1. Click on the Addresses link in the toolbar:

Creating and Using a Mailing List 1

2. In the Add to Personal address book section, enter the relevant details:

Nickname: enter a name for the group - you are not permitted to include spaces in the title.

Email address: enter the email addresses for the group members - ensure to separate each address with a comma (,)

First name/last name: You will need to enter at least one character in both first name and last name. Either enter the list of names or to save time, just put a single character such as a full stop or 'x'.

Additional info: it is optional whether you want to include any information in this field or leave it blank. However, it might be useful to include a meaningful description in this box to easily identity the mailing list, particularly if you have many.
