How to Create Mail Groups in Yahoo

By Brad Chacos

Mail groups help to reduce the stress on your clicking finger by allowing you to group multiple contacts together under one catch-all name, such as "Friends" or "Sales Team." After you create a mail group and populate it with a list of contacts, sending an email with the mail group as the recipient will send the message to everyone in the group. Mail groups go by many names, depending on your software and email provider; Yahoo! calls them "Categories."

Step 1

Navigate to the Yahoo! Mail homepage and sign in to your account.

Step 2

Click on the "Contacts" tab at the top of the page. Push the "Add Category" button that appears just underneath the Contacts tab.

Step 3

Type in a name for the mail group and press the "Save" button. You'll be taken to a main settings pane for the new category.

Step 4

Click the "Add Contacts" link in the main settings pane for the new category.

Step 5

Check the box to the left of each person's contact info if you'd like to add them to the list. Click "Done" when you're finished to save them to the mail group.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can add contacts to a category by checking the box to the left of the contact in the Address Book, then clicking "Add to Category" and selecting the group you'd like to add them to.
