Contact groups are very easy to make and allow you to quickly email a group of people when composing an email.

  1. Open Outlook  and select New Items > Contact Group

  2. Enter a Name for the new Contact Group. This name is important as it is used to add the group to a new email.

  3. Enter the Names and Email Addresses of the people that you wish to add to the group. (NB – when adding the name of a student or staff member Outlook  may autocomplete the email address for you).
  4. Click Save and Close.

  5. When composing an email Type the Name of the Group into the address field to send the email to that group.
