By emailing the same group of people regularly, you can reduce the time lost by creating a list of emails to use in Gmail. Although not inherently obvious, here’s how to create a mailing list.
Create an email list with Google Contacts
Typically Google, all the contacts you see and access in Gmail are managed by a separate Google application: Contacts. To create a list of contacts that you can use in Gmail, you need to visit the Google Contacts web application.
Launch a web browser and log in Contact Google. Once here, hover over the contact you want to add to the distribution list, then click the checkbox to select it. Repeat for each contact you want to include in the list.
Make sure each contact you add has an associated email. Otherwise, they will not appear on the label when you email them later.
Once you’ve selected all your contacts, click the Label icon, and then click the ‘Create Label’ button.
Give the label an easy-to-remember name and then click «Save» to create the contact list.
To add contacts to an existing label, select the contact, click the Label icon, click the label you want to add it to, and then click the ‘Apply’ button.
After saving the label, you can create another label for another list, or close the tab.
Send an email using the email list in Gmail
Now that you have a list created and tagged, go ahead tray from Gmail login to send an email to the entire contact group.
After the page loads, place your mouse cursor over the plus (+) icon and click the «Compose» button when it appears to start a new email.
From the New Message window, start typing the name you gave to the tag, and then click the suggestion when it appears below the text field.
Once you’ve selected the label, complete the email, and then click the «Send» button when you’re done to send it to everyone in the group list.
While you can use it to run a small business or marketing campaign, your free Google Account allows up to 500 emails sent and received per day. If you reach this limit within 24 hours, you may receive an error message informing you that you are in excess.
