Creating Address Groups in Outlook Express

Question: How can I assign a name to a group of people I regularly send emails to so that I can specify the group rather than having to select each name individually? I use Outlook Express.

Answer: You do this in the address book so you need to open that first.

Either select the File menu or the New button in the Address Book Toolbar and then select New Group. This will bring up a dialog box allowing you to create your new group.

The next step is to give your group a meaningful name that identifies the group.

You can now add existing contacts from your addressbook to the group using the Select Members button. Select a member to add to the group from your contacts list and select the Select -> button. Repeat until all of the members for the group appear in the right column and then press OK.

If you want to add contacts not already in your addressbook you can add them using the Add Contact button or if you just want them to be part of the group without entering all of the contact details enter their name and email address at the bottom of the dialog box and select Add.

Once you are finished creating your new group select OK to save it.
