Lotus Notes lets you send and receive email as well as manage email groups.

Lotus Notes, an email application for Windows systems, lets you send and receive emails as well as post and keep up with appointments on the program's calendar. The application also includes a database for storing task lists, forms and other information. To send a single email to multiple people, Lotus Notes lets you set up email groups that hold more than one email address. You can add, edit and even remove individuals, known as members, from an email group.


Step 1

Open Lotus Notes, if it is not open, by clicking "Start," "All Programs" and "Lotus Notes."
