How to create a group in Microsoft Outlook to send emails to multiple users at once

- Advertisment -

Emails had made our life easier. The days of sending emails through post boxes are gone. Now everything is digital.

Just log in with your email ID in an email client and you’re done. You no longer have to open your browser to access your emails. It also makes things easier if you are using a webmail. As most of them offer limited storage.

But from time to time you might need to send a single email to multiple colleagues. I know how frustrating it is to enter all the email ids one after another. Yes, I know autocomplete is there. But still, you can make mistakes. You will not be spared if your email is not received by one of your colleagues. It will be you, who will be responsible. Thus, here we will discuss how to create a group in Microsoft Outlook. Just enter the name of the group and Outlook will automatically send the particular email to all the users in that group. Isn’t that cool! So without further delay let’s see how to create a group in Microsoft Outlook to send emails to multiple users at once.

How to create a group in Microsoft Outlook to send emails to multiple users at once

Step 1: Open Microsoft Outlook. Yes, that is quite obvious. You will get the usual Microsoft Outlook interface. Kind of similar to this.

Step 4: In the window which will be opened, select ‘New Contact Group’. You will find another option. It is with the name ‘Put this entry in:’. I will recommend you to keep as it is. Click on ‘OK’ and you will get another screen like this

You are done with creating the group with all the necessary contacts. Now sending an email is easier than you can think. And that too to all the members with just a single click. You can even modify the group later on. You are at liberty to add or remove members from the group.

Moreover, after modifying any contact detail, it will automatically be modified in the group. That is indeed great again.

In the ‘To…’ Section enter the name of the group which you have created. Now enter your subject line, the body, and attachments if there are any. Finally, click on the ‘Send’ button. It will be sent to all the users in that group.
