I thought you could do this - but i am either calling it wrongly or it's hidden somewhere.

I want to create 5 or 6 people that I can send emails too, without individually selecting each person

So Create a 'family' list them use that list to send 'family' emails too?

Am I in cloud cuckoo land?

Yes, you definitely can. I do it at work often.

I am on Evolution at home so I can't remember the exact keystrokes but I think you go into your address book, then create a new contact group, then drop the contacts you want to add into the list. Then you can choose to select the whole list when you send.

Hopefully someone on outlook will be along in a sec with the answer, but you are not mad and it should be listed somewhere.

(If you click on "new" in your address book, does an option come up on a dropdown menu offering to create a new group? (wracks brains))

Tools; Address Book; File; New Entry; New Distribution List; OK

Then give it a name and add the people you want by hitting 'Select Members' for those in yur address book already, or 'Add New' for new addresses.

Then Save and Close.
