Icloud has swallowed three distribution lists from a W7 pc. Thought maybe if I built a group in icloud I might get something that worked but couln't put it in an Emal. So my question is how can I take 50 or so contacts and send them an Email from either a PC or an IPAD
It will be different for different email services.
For iCloud log into iCloud.com
then click on the contacts icon
then click the red bookmark with a picture of a person
This will bring up the area for Groups
Click the + at the bottom to create a new group
Drag contacts from the right pane into the groups on the left pane.
