How do I send group emails with the W10 Mail app?
QCould you explain how to send group emails in the Windows 10 Mail app? I’ve tried and failed to do this, so I have continued using Windows Live Mail. As Microsoft no longer supports this I want to move on. I need to send emails to lots of people in three distinct groups, and they must be blind carbon copied (BCC). It’s very time consuming having to send them all individually.
AWe’ve mentioned before that the Mail app does not offer the ability to send group emails. We believe that Microsoft will eventually get around to adding such a basic feature, but assuming you don’t want to wait until the twelfth of never, it’s possible to use Windows 10’s People app to fudge a solution.
The trick is to create a new contact to serve as a proxy for a group. So, to begin, launch People then click the plus (‘+’) button to create a new entry. Type a suitable name (such as ‘Chess Group’), then click in the Email Personal field below and type as many individual email addresses as you need, putting a comma between each one (see screenshot), then click the Save button.
Then, in Mail, compose an email as normal. In the To field, click the ‘Cc & Bcc’ link, then click the People icon just to the right of the Bcc field. Click to select the relevant group and then click the Email Personal field, which will insert all the email addresses associated with this ‘contact’. Now just type your email and click Send when ready.
