What is a Contact Group in Outlook for PC
A group of contacts (formerly known as a distribution list) is a list of people or email addresses that you can use to send emails to more than one person at once. Creating a contact group or list means you don’t have to type out all the email addresses of a set of recipients every time you want to send an email, which can come in handy when you need to send multiple emails to multiple people on a regular basis. In this article, we have shown how to create a contact group in Outlook for Office 365 and older versions.
