Outlook Express Groups
Do you constantly send e-mails to the same bunch of people? Do you get tired of going through your address book and hunting and pecking for each address and adding them the send to box?
I don’t know about you but I find myself sending stuff to the same people every day. Instead of doing this every time, create a group in Outlook Express. Then, instead of 10 or 20 names to sort through, you have one.
Open your address book and click on New and then select New Group .
In the window that appears, type the name you want to call this group in the Group Name box (note: the recipients will see this name, so don’t be offensive). I was extremely creative and named mine “My Group.” Then simply add any names from your address book by clicking the Select Members button or you can add new addresses by clicking New Contact .
Now, when you want to send group e-mails, you have one entry in your address book for your entire group. You can add or remove names as often as you wish by using the Select Members or Remove buttons, too. You can also create as many groups as you like (one for co-workers, one for family, one for friends, etc.).
