Creating a Contact
Suppose that you find yourself sending the same
e-mails to a specific group of contacts. For
example, you may like to share jokes with a specific
group of people, or you may be participating in a
project and you need to communicate with the
project team regularly. You can set up a Contact
Group in Outlook.
3. In the Name box, type a title for the group.
Use something simple, but descriptive such
as Smith Project or Joke group.

Members>From Outlook Contacts. Outlook

Using an Outlook Contact Group you can

the contact group—when you address an e-mail.
