Join Jess Stratton for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a new contact group, part of Outlook 2013 Essential Training.
Outlook has the ability for you to create Groups, that is a named list that…contains many email addresses.…When you address a new email, you can also send out the email to the Group name.…So everyone who is on that list gets the message.…To create a group, I'm going to make sure I'm in my People tab in Outlook.…Then click New Contact Group.…The first thing I need to do is give it a name, once I'm all done with that …I can add members to my Group.…I'm going to click Add Members.…Now I have three options.…
I can choose somebody who's in my local Outlook contacts, double-click to…add them and click OK; I can then choose people from my actual exchange…company address book, I can double-click to add them and as many people as I want actually.…I can click OK; and finally I can put in an email address in directly.…This person doesn't have to be in my contacts at all;…in fact I have the option here, if I want to actually add them to my contacts …if they aren't already.…
I'm going to uncheck this, if I just want to do a one-off email address in this Group.…
