UMail on the Web: Contact Lists

You can create Contact Lists in UMail on the Web from the contacts in your Address Book. This makes the process of regularly sending messages to multiple recipients more efficient.
Note: This process creates a mailing list in UMail on the Web that only you can access. For more information on creating email lists using Mailman, see our Electronic Mailing Lists documentation.

Create a Contact List

To create a Contact List:

  1. In the Mailbox Menu, click Address Book.
  2. On the My Address Book screen, select the check box(es) next to the contact(s) who will make up your list.
  3. From the Contact List drop-down menu, select Address Book (right below Create a New Contact List in), then click Add (at left).
  4. You will be prompted for a list name, then you will return to the My Address Book screen. Your list will appear in the Contact List drop-down menu and a message confirming that your list was created and contacts were added to your list will appear at the top of the screen. Your list will also appear in your Address Book marked by the List icon ().

To move a contact from your Address Book listing to a contact list, select the check box next to the contact's name, select the contact list, then click Add. Your contact will appear in the list you specified as well as on the My Address Book screen.
