Create and Send to Gmail Contact Groups

Creating contact groups

With contact groups you can easily organize your contacts, making it easier to email a specific set of people. For example, if you created a contact group called “Soccer club”, you could just send a message to that group, rather than sending out an email to 50 different people. Never leave somebody off an email again!

To create a contact group:

  1. Click Gmail at the top-left corner of your Gmail page, then choose Contacts.
  2. Select contacts that you want to add to a group, click the Groups button. , then Create new.
  3. Enter the name of the group.
  4. Click OK.

To add contacts to a contact group:

  1. Select the contacts in the Contacts list.
  2. Click the Groups button.
  3. Select the group you’d like to add the contact to, or select Create new to create a new group.
  4. If you have multiple addresses saved for a contact, you can choose which address should belong to the contact group by opening the contact and clicking the small arrow next to the group you’d like to modify.

Send to a contact group

To send messages to contact groups, you first need to create a contact group. Once you’re set up, there are two ways to address a message to your contact group:

From the Compose window

  1. Click Compose.
  2. In the To: field, enter the first few letters of the name of the contact group to which you’d like to send the message.
  3. Select your contact group from the list of addresses the auto-complete feature suggests.
  4. Compose your message.

From the Contact Manager

  1. Click Gmail at the top-left corner of your Gmail page, then choose Contacts.
  2. Select the group on the left side of the page.

    Right now it seems like Movable Type is the best blogging
    platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?
