Last week, I showed you how to send group email messages using two popular email clients. (Click here to read how to send a group message from the Windows Mail app and here to learn how to send a group message using Outlook in MS Office.)
A group email allows you to type the email once and send it to multiple people. A good use for a group might be coworkers, members of a book club, or family members.
Today, I’ll show you how to do it using the popular Outlook online in a browser. If your email address ends in Outlook.com, Hotmail.com, MSN.com, or LiveMail.com and you access it by opening a web browser, these instructions will work for you.
First, you’ll need to go online to your inbox, which should look like this:
Click the square of squares at the top left and then choose People.
When People opens, click the drop-down arrow next to New contact and choose New contact list.
The New contact list window will open. Start by naming the list.
You can also add a description of the list.
Start typing in the Add contacts window to see a list of your contacts.
Just click on a contact to add it to the list.
Or type in a new address and click Add.
When you’ve added all the names, just click Create.
When you create a new email, click the To: and look for Book Club in your contacts or just start typing Book Club.
The message will be sent to every member of your group.
