A distribution list allows you to compile multiple email addresses into one list, meaning that if you want to send an email to a big group of recipients on a regular basis, you can do so by sending it to your distribution list, rather than by manually entering each email address every time you wish to send a mass email.

To create a distribution list, follow the instructions below: 

1

From the Address Book overview, click the New button and then select Add Distribution List from the dropdown menu.


2

First, name your distribution list, then begin adding contact. Do this by typing the contact name into the box, and then selecting from the options as they appear.

Once your list is complete, click the Create List button.

4

Your distribution list will now appear in your address book.

How do I copy contacts to a contact folder?

This section will explain how to copy a contact to a contact folder in 123-mail webmail.

Copying your contacts to a new folder is similar to moving your contacts to a new folder, but the key difference is that it duplicates the contact, meaning that the original contact stays in the original folder, and the duplicate moves to the new, specified folder. This is useful for if you have your contacts split between work and personal, for example, but also want to create a frequently used folder. This will enable you to keep your work and personal split, and combine the contacts you frequently use. 

1

From the Address book, select the contact you wish to copy. Then click the options button and select Copy from the dropdown menu. 

2

You will now be able to select from your available folders, so select the folder you wish to use, and then click Copy.
