How To Create a Group in the Webmail Address Book


Webmail provides a way to create custom email groups via the address book. This allows users to better manage emailing large groups of contacts on a frequent basis. Instead of having to add many contacts for each email over and over again, you can add just the group.

NOTE: If you are an Exchange user, visit to read your email. If you don't know whether you use Exchange, see How do I know if my email uses Exchange or IMAP?

Modifying a group in Webmail

  • To add existing email addresses from your Personal Address book, drag the contact to the newly created group.
  • To remove a contact from a group, select the contact you wish to delete from the group and click on the trash-can icon. This will remove the contact from only the group it has been added to, it will not delete the contact in general.
  • To add new addresses that are not in your Personal Address Book, highlight the Group in the left pane and then click on the Create New Contact icon and fill in information on the right.

Using groups in Webmail

To use your new group, type in the group name in the "To" box when you are composing a message. The box should automatically populate with all of the email addresses that are tied to the group.
