Since ISPs have limits on the number of recipients for any one email, I wonder if there is any quick/automatic way of notifying everybody in Outlook Address book without installing mailing list software?

You can open your address book and then click file and create a "Group" Give your group a name and then add whoever you want to that group (all of your address book if you like)

Then when you open a new mail and want to add your "Group"
to the send to list Just type in the first few letters of your groups name in the address bar and hit Alt k Your groups name should then appear in the address bar.
You can add or remove members of your group by right clicking the groups name and add or remove members.

I am unsure about ISP limits on recipients, but I send to 100's of different people using this method at work.

Hi Tom,

Open a new mail, click Tools | Address Book. Then on the address book, click File | New Group. Click the Group tab, then the Select Members button.

Then in the new window you have two panes.. the left is your address book. Click each one in turn, and press the Select button after each. This moves them into the group you are setting up. This can be used for any selection of more than one person, and can be changed, updated at any time.

Choose a name for your group, such as Everyone... or something :) and click OK.

Now open your address book and you will see your group listed. Select that address as normal, and your mail will be sent to all recipients in that group.

There may be a quicker way, but I just did it to test, and it's a couple of minutes work. (y)

Cheers

Liam
