Whether you are organizing a big party, a high school reunion, or a work project, sending an email to a whole group of people at once is an efficient time saver. Take a couple of minutes to set up a mailing list in Yahoo Mail just for this purpose. After you set up the mailing list, you're ready to send your first group email.

Set Up a Mailing List in Yahoo Mail

Open a new mail list and add the people you want from your Contacts. Here's how:

  1. Click the Contacts icon at the top of the Yahoo Mail screen.

  2. Click New List in the left panel.

  3. Type a name for the list and click Enter.

  4. Click All Contacts in the left panel. Drag and drop contacts onto the new mailing list.

Send a Message to a Yahoo Mail Mailing List

To send an email to all members of a mailing list you set up in Yahoo Mail:

  1. Start with a new message. Click the Compose button to create a new message.

  2. Enter your own Yahoo Mail address in the To: field.

  3. Type the name of the mailing list in the Bcc: field. If the email doesn't already have a Bcc field, click CC/BCC at the top right of the new email to add it.

  4. Compose and send the message.

Yahoo Mail automatically replaces the list name with all the list members' email addresses and distributes the message to them. The list of individual recipients is not disclosed to others who receive the message.
