By Trisha Bartle

Microsoft Outlook 2007, a software program that lets you send and receive emails, allows users to add contact information to an address book. Store full names, physical addresses and email address for anyone in your life, whether friends, family or business associates. There are rare occasions where you may want to send an email to everyone in your contacts list, whether to announce a new baby or alert people of a family crisis. In this case, Outlook 2007 allows you to send one email out to everyone in your address book.

Step 1

Start Outlook 2007. Look for the icon in the computer's "Start" menu.

Step 2

Click the "File" menu at the top of the Outlook window. Hover over "New" and choose "Mail Message" from the drop-down list.

Step 3

Click inside the "To" text box. Click the "Address Book" button at the top of the screen.

Step 4

Click the first name in the list of contacts so it's highlighted. Scroll down the list. Press and hold the "Shift" key and click on the last name in the list. All names in your Outlook 2007 contacts will be highlighted. Click the "To ->" button to add the selected names to the "To" field. Click the "OK" button.

Step 5

Add a short message to the "Subject" text box. Your recipients will see this message before they open the email. Write out the body of the email in the large text box under the subject line. When you're ready to send the email, click the "Send" button.

Tips & Warnings

  • Read through your email carefully before sending it to everyone in your Outlook 2007 contacts. Once it's sent, you can't go back and fix mistakes.
