Creating a contact list - Outlook Web Access

A contact list (also known as a group list, or a distribution list) is a collection of contacts. It's sometimes also called a distribution list.

You can specify a contact list as a recipient when you compose an email message. When you send the message, it goes to all of the contacts in the list at the same time. For example, you might create a contact list named "My book club" and add all of the members of your book club to it. Then to address a message to everyone in the club, you would only have to enter My book club on the To: line of the email.

  1. Go to your mail account, and click the People icon at the very bottom left.
