How do I create a group in the address book?

Create contact groups (also known as distribution lists or contact lists) to organize and manage contacts more easily. Use a contact group to send an e-mail to several people.

If you regularly send e-mails to the same group of recipients or to a group of people, you can, for example, specify the group in the address field when writing an e-mail instead of having to add each recipient individually.

Examples of recipient groups: Association members, addresses within a company, people with common interests, etc.


How do I set up a group?

  • Open the Address book in the desktop version
  • Tap on Edit groups in the top right-hand corner (1)
  • First enter a name or a name for the group (2) and save the entry with Add
