You might want to organize your Mac e-mail contacts into groups so you can send e-mail to everyone in a group with a single click. The Snow Leopard Address Book makes it easy to create an e-mail group, whether you want to communicate with your son’s indoor football league or want to share a press release with a group of fifty newspapers. Here’s how to create a group and add contacts to it:

1

Double-click the Address Book icon in the Applications folder.

The Address book Application opens.

2

Click the + button at the bottom of the Group column.

An untitled Group appears in the Group column with “untitled group” highlighted.

3

Type a descriptive name for this group and then press Enter or Return.

The example here uses PR, which stands for Public Relations.

4

Click All Contacts in the Group column.

All your contacts appear in the Name column.

5

Click the contacts you want in the group in the Name column.

Hold down the Command key as you select to choose more than one contact.

6

Drag the selected contact names onto the group.

Address Book considerately displays the number of contacts you’re dragging, which happens to be two in this instance.
