Quickly Address a Message to Contacts

Creating an e-mail message in Outlook that is addressed to multiple recipients can involve several steps: First, create a new message; next, open your Address Book; and finally, add the recipients to the To line one a time.

Try this simple shortcut instead:

1. Click Contacts.

2. Select the contacts you want to send a message to by clicking the first contact, holding down CTRL, and then clicking additional contacts.

3. Drag the selected contacts onto the Inbox on the Outlook Shortcuts bar (or in the Folder List).

A new message appears with the names of the contacts you selected on the To line.

This method also works when you need to send a message to only one contact.

Editor's Note: Alternatively, you can select the contacts and then click New Message to Contact on the Actions menu instead of dragging the contacts onto the Inbox.
