How to Create a Group Email With AOL

by Contributing Writer

AOL email users who frequently send an email to a large group of the same recipients will benefit from creating an AOL email distribution list, often called a "group." These lists are easy to create. Once created, sending an email to the entire group is quick and easy.

1

Log into your AOL email account. You can do this by using your Internet browser and going to http://webmail.aol.com. There, you will find places to enter your username and password in the upper right-hand side of the screen. After entering this information, allow AOL email to completely load.

2

Click on the word "Contacts" on the left-hand side of the screen.

3

Click on the word "New" on the next screen. This will display a list of additional options. Click on "New List."

4

Enter a name for your new distribution list in the box next to "Distribution List Name."

5

Enter the list of email addresses you would like to include on this distribution list in the next box, labeled "Add Contacts." Separate individual email addresses with a comma.

6

Click "Create." You are ready to send an email to the entire group.

7

Click "Compose." In the "To" field, type in the name you gave your distribution list in Step 4 above. Compose your message and click send.
