This is a great way to create personalized distribution
lists when you are consistently sending email to a specific group of
- Click on File on the main menu bar (not inside an
email message), then New, and then Distribution List. (You may have to
click on the arrow at the bottom of the list in order to see it.)
- Where it says Name:, type a name for the group you
are creating. (Ex: PD Committee)
- Click on Selecct Members... to add people who are in
the global distribution list. (In other words they are part of the
state system.) You can add as many as you like.
- To add folks who are not in the global distribution
system (like parents), then click on Add New... Where it says Display
Name, type the person's name. Where it says Email Address, type their
complete address (ex: email@example.com) If you also want to add this person
to your contacts list, then click the checkbox next to Contacts. Then
- Once you are finished adding names, click on Save and
- Now when you are ready to send an email to this
group, just open a new message, click on To:, then change Global
Address List to Contacts. (It is at the very bottom of the list.) You
will then see your contacts and distribution list. Double click on the
one you want, and then click OK.
This is a great way to make better use of your time when
you have to send email to a group!
From Kim Overstreet's Tip
of the Week...:
If you have need to cc
someone on an email that you are sending, but you don't want others
receiving the email to know that this other person will be getting it to,
you can BCC them. BCC stands for Blind Carbon Copy.
This also comes in handy
when you are emailing class news out to parents, but you don't want all of
the parent's email addresses showing for everyone to see. Put them all in
the BCC field
Open the message that you want to send
- Click on View
- Click on BCC Field
(you may have to expand the menu to see it--do this by either
waiting a few seconds, or clicking on the arrows at the bottom of
- Then type the name of
the secret recipients in the BCC field.
The question I've had
before when doing this was that if someone were to reply to all, would it
go to the people that were BCC'ed? And the answer is no. Your recipients
can only reply to you and those who are in the TO or CC field, but not to
anyone who was Blind Carbon Copied.
