A simple question about Outlook Express 5.0

Posted on 2000-03-07

Hey there gang,

A simple question I was wondering if it were possible for me to click on one of my contacts and instead of just sending to one, automaticly send to both of their e-mail addresses that I have in there, if this is possible, maybe you can tell me how to do it?.

Would appreciate it a whole lot, using Windows 98 SE by the way

What version of Outlook are you using?  I am using Outlook 2000 ( and when I do this the office assistant pops up and says

"Microsoft Outlook - This contact has more than one e-mail address.  The new message will include all the e-mail addresses for this contact.  Remove the ones you don't want before sending"

So it looks like it works fine for me!

opps - don't think you can do it in Outlook Express as one of the contacts is set as a default. If you use Outlook 2000 it works fine.

Other way to do it is to create a group for people with more than one email address.
