If you send an
email to an address group, then an identical copy of the email will
sent over the Internet to each email address in
Address groups are very useful if you often send email
to the same list of people -- your family, a group of people at work,
or people with which you
are engaged in a club or hobby. It is a lot faster, and less error prone, to
an email with one address group than with a long list of individual addresses.
If your email program address
book doesn't have a group feature, then you can
create a manual group manually by creating a text file, and then storing the
email addresses in the text file separated by commas.
open the text file, copy the
email addresses, and paste them into the To field of a new email whenever you
need them. You can also put the list of email addresses in the
of an email that you then send to yourself, so that you can quickly access the
addresses by opening that email without having to open an external
text file with another program.
Sometimes you can conveniently make a temporary address
group by using the "reply to all"
function on an email that was sent to a group of people that you've already communicated
with. You can then change the subject and
replace the body of the email before
sending a new email, thereby saving you the trouble of adding all of the addresses
one by one.
