The simplicity of sending the same message to more than one recipient is one of email's biggest assets. In Yahoo! Mail, you can make distributing emails even easier by creating a mailing list.

Create a Mailing List in Yahoo! Mail

To set up a list for group mailing in Yahoo! Mail:

  1. Click the Contacts icon in your Yahoo! Mail's navigation bar.
  2. Click New List in the left navigation bar.
    • New List will appear below any existing Yahoo! Mail lists you have set up.
  1. Type the desired name for the list.
  2. Hit Enter.

Unfortunately, creating new lists is not available in Yahoo! Mail Basic; switch to the full version, if you can, temporarily.

Add Members to a Yahoo! Mail List

To add members to the list you just created:

  1. Drag and drop them onto the list (from All Contacts, for example).

You can also use Assign to Lists for any contact to add them to one list or more.

Send Mail to Your Yahoo! Mail List

And now that you have a mailing list in Yahoo! Mail, you can start using it!
