E mail multiple people in Outlook 2010

I need to email (bcc) multiple people in Outlook 2010.

I am going round and round in circles on this

Could someone let me know, simply, who to do this.

At the moment, I have all the contacts in One Folder in "My contacts".

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

the easiest way to do this would to create a mailmerge, see below for step by step guide to doing this


Other than that I think generally you have to get third party software as outlook doesn't natively support it.
If its the same people you email again and again then you could create a distribution list, add the contacts to it and just put the distribution list in the BCC field.
Gundog is right, if you're doing this from an administrator level and don't want to get into mailmerging, but from a end user pov mailmerge/third party software is the way forward.

As it appears there are problems with my Outlook profile creating a distrubtion list did not work.

What third party application would you recommend? Freeware?

I use Firefox as a browser - any addins?

If this is a repeated process with the same email addresses involved, then the new Quick Steps feature might be right up your alley...

From within Outlook 2010, go to the Quick Steps section under the Home tab, click the bottom most down arrow in that section (when hovering, it will read More) > New Quick StepNew E-mail To.

From the First Time Setup window > name this Quick Step in the Name field > click Options > click the Show Options link > click the Add Bcc link > type in or select the email addresses you want into the Bcc field > click Save after you're done.

New Quick Step will be in Quick Steps window. Simply click on it, and then a new email will open up with the BCC field populated as you set it. Very convenient!
