IPAD - Send Email to Many Contacts

Hey guys,

Kind of a random scenario. We have an email blast that we send out weekly, the user who sends it out uses an iPad only. We have a list of the email addresses, is there way to save all the contact emails and send them the blast (we'd like to keep the actual email addresses of the recipients hidden).

Thanks!

Depending o the method, you could group all the addresses and anything placed in the bcc (blind carbon copy) the recipients will receive but would not be disclosed.
Well you can setup Outlook or Gmail etc
We use the CC option and then add each address into the CC tab. Only needs to be done once.

Arnold, he has all the emails, is there way to add them all as like one contact? That way when he sends an email, he can just hit BCC and then that contact and go ahead and send it out.

Yes, within ipad contacts which I presumes this is where the contact emails are, there is a section that you can add groups and combining the contacts, however, sone providers limit how many recipients there could be for an email. Given this has been ongoing for sone time, that limit has not been reached.

Gush ally, within the settings of mail, contacts, you can enable which mail accounts have access to the iPad contacts...
I.e. You have multiple mail accounts, but the iPad contacts is not available in your preferred account that would be used to email these messages, check whether the iPad contacts are enabled for the email account in question.
you also have the guides I posted  How to Set Up Contacts for Group Mailing in iOS Mail
if your not bothered to manually do it one by one there is an app
The group mail app is designed  for those iPad users who need frequently send Emails to many recipients. With the help of Group Mail HD, you can create and manage groups, and add or remove contacts from created groups. Of course, the most importance is that the iPad app allows you to send a mail to a number of contacts without typing multiple Email addresses.

You actually will need to use iCloud to create the group and add contacts to it.
