How to Create an Email Group on iPhone or iPad


Hey everyone. I’m Max Dalton, and in this video I’ll show
you how to create an email group on iPhone or iPad. Being able to send an email to a large group
of people simply by entering the group name rather than each individual email address
can be a real time saver. While Apple doesn’t make it easy to create
email groups on the iPhone or iPad, it is possible using the Contacts app. Now let’s walk through the steps to create
an email group on your iPhone or iPad. Step 1. Open the Contacts app on your iPhone or iPad,
and then tap the “+” icon to create a new contact. The New Contact screen appears. Step 2. Type a name for your email group in the Company
field, and leave the First Name and Last Name fields blank. Step 3. Scroll down to the Notes field, and then enter
the email addresses you want to include in your iPhone or iPad email group distribution
list. The email addresses should be separated by
a comma, similar to what I’m showing on the screen. Step 4. Hold your finger against any of the email
addresses you just entered in the Notes field to open a menu, and then choose to copy all
of those email addresses. Step 5. Scroll back up the screen to the Email field,
and then paste the email addresses you just copied into any of the email fields. Tap “Done” to save and create your new contact
group. Now, anytime you want to send an email to
your newly created email group on your iPhone or iPad, you just have to open the contacts
app, tap the contact associated with your email group, and then tap “Mail” at the top
of that group’s information screen. A new email message screen will be displayed,
and the individual email addresses associated with your email distribution list will automatically
be populated in the To field. Please note that while you can open a new
email message, type the name of your email group contact in the To field, and select
that group to populate its name in the To field, you’ll get an Invalid Address message
when you try to send that message. You can still move forward with sending your
email and there’s a good chance it still gets to all of your intended recipients, but there
is the risk that it doesn’t. Let me know what your favorite email service
is in the comments below. If you liked what you saw here, click the
