How to Send to Multiple Recipients Using Yahoo Mail

Sending an email to multiple recipients is a time-saving convenience that many email clients offer their users, and Yahoo Mail is no exception. Yahoo enables you to add multiple recipients in two different locations when composing an email: the "CC" and "BCC" fields. While the "CC" field enables all recipients to see who else is receiving an email, the "BCC" field enables you to hide a specific recipient so the other recipients do not know he or she received the message. Yahoo does not disclose the maximum amount of recipients you can add to a message due to security concerns.

Step 1

Compose a new email, or reply to an email from within your Yahoo Mail account.

Step 2

Click the "CC" or "BCC" buttons to the right of the "To" field, depending on your needs. A "CC" or "BCC" field will appear underneath the "To" field.

Step 3

Enter each email address you want to receive the message. There is no need to separate the addresses by commas, as Yahoo separates each email for you automatically.

Compose your email as normal, and click "Send" to send your message to multiple recipients. Depending on the number of recipients, Yahoo may require you to fill out a CAPTCHA form to send your email.


  • If your email contains too many recipients, Yahoo will not send it. You will need to delete some recipients to successfully send the message.


  • You can also use the "Add Recipients" icon, located to the right of each field as a "+" shaped icon, to select contacts from your contact list.
  • Yahoo recommends its users enroll in Yahoo Groups if they find themselves sending emails to a large number of recipients daily.
