Quickly Address Messages to Contacts
Creating an e-mail message in Outlook that is addressed to
multiple recipients can involve several steps: First, create
a new message; next, open your Address Book; and finally,
add the recipients to the To line one a time.
Step by Step
- Click Contacts.
- Select the contacts you want to send a message to by
clicking the first contact, holding down CTRL, and then
clicking additional contacts.
- Drag the selected contacts onto the Inbox on the
Outlook Shortcuts bar (or in the Folder List).
A new message appears with the names of the contacts you
selected on the To line.
This method also works when you need to send a message to
only one contact.
Note: Alternatively, you can select the contacts
and then click New Message to Contact on the Actions
menu instead of dragging the contacts onto the Inbox.
