How To Create A Distribution List In Gmail For Your Business Or Organization

How to create a distribution list in Gmail seems to be a daunting question for a newbie. In fact, when I first started using Google I was clueless about it too. When I browse through my email account, I was really dumb at the whole process of how to create a distribution list in Gmail. But after reading lots of tutorials on how to use the Gmail service I understood it now. Here is how to do it.

Create Distribution List in Gmail First go back to your Gmail account. Click on compose to compose an email. Now at the TO box type your new group name, (you will see little popup list of the all the emails in your account)

Select a category if you don’t know one yet and click on search. Now type the group name in the search box and choose the distribution you want to join. By clicking on ok you are already a member of the selected group. You can view all your other emails and contact’s in your group.

Now that you are a part of your group you will have the chance to grow your network. You can add more contacts to your group by going to contacts. There you will see many categories for you to choose from. Click on the plus sign and you will be able to add more people to your group. You can add as many people as you can and their contacts too. To remove a member from your group just click on him and remove him from the group.

This is how to create a distribution list in Gmail for a business, an organization, a school or an individual. With this system you will never run out of email addresses to add to your contacts. Google gives us flexibility to manage our contacts and organize them in different ways. We can organize them by activity (type of activity) or activity (time period we were online). You will have the control when creating groups.

So if you ever wanted to organize your contacts into an easy to access database for future use or just to send direct email offers or sales messages without having to go through a series of screens, create a distribution. You can even group your emails so that if you are writing an email for someone in a group, it will be sent to all members of that group. It’s that easy. And best of all, Google Groupware is free!
