Creating contact lists in Outlook on the web


How to create and edit contact lists in webmail. Contact lists are a way for you to communicate with multiple people at once.

Creating a contact list allows storage of a list of people or groups to send email. The list is used to send the same message to multiple contacts without entering each contact separately in the message. The list is saved in the Contacts folder. Lists that are created in your Contacts folder aren't available to others.
