How to create a group mailing list on an iPad

I worked this out when trialing a group email app, and quickly worked out what it did. It so simple, it’s stupid!

  1. Create a contact and in the name field, type your group name – i.e. ‘family’
  2. In the email field, type in all the emails address for your group. The email field will accept multiple email address.
  3. Click/tap [Done] when all the email address are entered
  4. Compose email.
  5. Insert the name of the group in the ‘To’, ‘CC’, or ‘BCC’ field. The group name should appear as you’re typing. Only the name of the group will appear, but it will contain all the email address.
  6. Type your email.
  7. Click/tap [Send]. Everyone in your group  should receive you’re email.

For existing group mailing lists on your Mac or PC, conversion is quite simple.

  1. Compose a new email.
  2. In the ‘To’, ‘CC’, or ‘BCC’ field, type the name of your group. The name and possibly the email of each individual will now appear.
  3. Select all the contacts (Mac: [COMMAND] + [A]. PC: [CONTROL] + [A])
  4. Copy the contacts (Mac: [COMMAND] + [C]. PC: [CONTROL] + [C])
  5. Create a contact and in the name field, type your group name – i.e. ‘family’
  6. In the email field, paste all the emails address for your group (Mac: [COMMAND] + [C]. PC: [CONTROL] + [C]). The email field will accept multiple email address.
  7. Click/tap [Done] when all the email address are entered.
  8. You can now compose your email as per the first set of instructions.

I told you it was simple!
