How to Create Contact Groups in Outlook

Create Contact Groups

    A blank New Contact Group window appears.

  5. Double-click the contacts you want to add.

    The name and email address of the contacts you add are shown in the Members field.

  6. Click OK.
  7. Click Save & Close.
    Create Contact Groups

The new contact group is saved and will appear within your contacts list.

Communicate with a Contact Group

Communicating with a contact group is just as easy as communicating with a single contact.

  1. Select a contact group.
  2. Click Email.

    The name of the contact group appears in the To field, just like a single contact's name would.

    Create Contact Groups

  3. Compose the message, then click Send.
    Create Contact Groups

The email is sent to everyone in the contact group at once.

When creating an email, you can just enter the group name in the To field like you would with a single contact.
