We talked in a previous post about easiest ways to address an email. You can read that post here if you missed it. The question now is, what if I want to send the email to more than one person.
If you are using the type the person’s name in the blank method mentioned you can hit enter as soon as the email program shows the full name of the first person you are typing and then start typing the next name.
You can of course, still use the address book function and keep finding and adding people that way, but it’s more work than this way if you know the first and last name of who you want to email.
There have been some questions regarding the easiest way to address an email. So far, this is what we’ve observed:
- When you start to type the name of anyone you’ve emailed before, it pops up and shows you their address
- When you want to send to someone who’s in the global address book (campus) you can type thier name like Hamid Band and move on. When you send the message it looks them up and tells you only if it finds more than one Hamid Band or if there are none. Otherwise it send the mail to Hamid. Next time you send to Hamid, it automatically tells you his address when you start typing.
- You can, if you are unsure of the full name, etc, click on the To and type the part of the name you know and click the magnifying glass to look them up.
