How to Make a Distribution List on iPhone
When you regularly send emails to a group of people from your iPhone, you might consider creating a distribution list in your smartphone. Once you save your list as a contact in your phone, you can enter the list name in the "To:" field of your email rather than typing everybody's individual email address. Although various mail applications are available for purchase from which you can create a list, you can make the list without using an app.
Tap the "Notes" icon on your iPhone home screen, and then tap the "+" sign to open a new note.
Enter the email addresses you want to add to the distribution list. Type a "<" at the beginning of each address and a ">" at the end. Also, separate each address with a comma and do not put a space between addresses. For example, "
Tap the screen twice at the end of your list. Three options appear. Tap "Select All" from the options.
Press the "Home" button, and tap the "Contacts" application on the home screen.
Tap the "+" at the top right corner to create a new contact.
Tap the email field twice, and select "Paste."
Enter a name for you list in the name or company fields at the top of the screen. Tap "Done."
Tips & Warnings
- The next time you want to send an email to your distribution list, enter the list contact name in the "To" field.
- If you have a long list of emails to add, you can compose your list from Step 2 in an email on your computer. Then email it to your iPhone. Select and copy it from the email screen on your phone and continue from Step 4.
