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.

Open Outlook Express
Click Address
File, New Group
Enter Name of User
Type in the email address and Add for all the addresses in the "E-MAIL:" box.  (yoo do not have to fill in the Name box.

When composing message send to the Group.

That's it!
