How To Create A Mailing List in Gmail

Dear Computer Lady:

How do I send to several people on my mailing list on

Thank you for all your help, as I am a senior and it takes me a little longer to learn things.

Dear Madeleine,

The first thing you need to do is create a group for your mailing list.

Open your Gmail, and click on “Gmail” on the left right under the word, “Google”.

2. In the drop down list click on “Contacts” to switch your your contacts window.
3. Point to the list under “Contacts” to display all the options, and click on “New Group” at the bottom of the list.

4. Type a name for your group and click, “OK”

5. Your new group will appear on the left under “My Contacts” Click on it and an empty box will appear in the main window.

6. Click the button at the top of the window that looks like a person with a plus sign next to it, and type the name of the first person you want to add to the list. Click on the desired name, then click “Add” at the bottom of the dialog box to add the person to your list.
Repeat step 6 until you have all the members added to your list.

Now, when you want to send an email to your list, just start typing the name of your list in the “To” section of a new email, and select your list.
