    Using Mail for email


    I cannot figure out how to set up an email "group" from my contacts. I want to send the same email to 20 people. Do I have to enter each one individually from the contact list?

    As far as I know, you can't create groups in Mail app.

    Assuming you are using outlook.com ( aka Hotmail.com ), you will have to use the web account like you used to before Windows 10.

    Yes sorry you will have to do each e-mail individually
    There is no way for you to send an e-mail from Mail App as a group
    So hopefully soon it could be one of the items to be added

    Here is the direct copy from he answer to the same question from TechNet forum............

    https://social.technet.microsoft.com...10itprogeneral
    The Mail and People apps work together, so if you added an Outlook.com or Exchange account, your contacts are automatically added to the People app. And they cannot do groups.

    How to send to groups in Windows 10 mail app?


    So I found a way to make it work, so I have groups in the People app.

    Contact name is Starwars group for instance. The personal email is

    bob@t.com, jeff.c@yahoo.com,terri@live.com


    then you save. in the people app you highlight the contact on the left and on the right the emails show up under the words PERSONAL EMAIL.

    Click on the words and it will ask you what app to use, choose mail (make it default). All the emails are now in the to field.

    I dont think there is a maximum, and I am able to send emails with addresses added this way.


    Hope it works for you.

    @barzac1

    The "answer" came from the same link I posted to you.
    The reason I did not point it out to you is because the moderators have not marked it as Answer although one month has passed after it was posted.
    There might be something that the forums moderators do not approve of.
    You can give it a try if you want.
