5. Either select from Outlook Contacts to add exisiting contacts from your Outlook Contacts (You can use the search box and then click the Members button)

or alternatively select New Email Contact to manually add members who are not in your Contacts yet.

6. Finally click Save & Close

Now when you compose an email you can type the name of your Contact Group e.g. Golf Club to email everybody

How many contacts are allowed in a Contact Group?

It is good practice to limit your Contact Group to no more than 50 members.

You can always create more groups such as Golf Club A to M and a second group called Golf Club N to Z
