Group email on iPhones and iPads.

20120918-095552.jpgSteps to create mail groups on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod devices.

Step 1: Open the Notes app on your device and create a new note. Within this note you will need to make a list of comma-separated addresses using the format below:

Name1<email1>, Name2<email2>, Name3<email3>, etc

Continue the pattern above until you’ve entered all of the email addresses for your mailing list. Once you’re finished, tap on the screen and choose “Select All” from the popup menu, then tap on “Copy.”

Step 2: Now we need to create a new contact. Open the Phone or Contacts app on your device and tap on the plus sign in the top right corner.

Step 3: Type in a name for your email group on the contact card. Next, scroll down to the “Email” box within the contact and tap on it twice. This should invoke a “Paste” button to appear slightly above the box. Tap on Paste, then press Done in the top right corner.

Step 4: You’ve now successfully created an email group. To test the group, exit to the home screen and open the Mail app. Create a new email using the button in the bottom right corner, then in the “To” section type in the name of your email group. Alternatively, you can enter the group name in the “Bcc” section to keep the recipients anonymous. Finally, select the name of your group, continue composing your message, then send it.
