My thoughts also
This is a discussion on How to send to GROUPS with iPad Mail within the iPad FAQ forums, part of the Apple iPad Discussions category; My thoughts also...
Hoping that iOS 5 will finally allow to send group Emails!
Thanks, this worked perfectly. And I used Ymail. I had sent an email using my desktop, then on iPad, I went to sent mail. Clicked on forward, and did the copy and paste into the contacts. Yeah!
How can I found out what the "this" is which worked perfectly?Originally Posted by Salbat
I don't see how to scroll backwards through this thread. (the first thread I've read, being new here)
Either tap the 'previous page' button at the bottom left, or if you want to go right back to the beginning of the thread scroll up to the top of the page and tap on 'page 1' (or whichever page you want).
Sorry but this is REALLY STUPID. On my Android phone (NOT by choice, would rather have an iPhone, but...), sending group email is one of many choices. Come on APPLE. This should be VERY SIMPLE to do, especially since you are now selling iPad and iPhone as business devices.
iPF noob, maybe, but LONG TIME Apple user.
Very nice job on grouping contacts! It solves one of my major dislikes on iPad email.
Hi I posted re Mailshot and syncing groups from OE, it was a dream and worked perfectly. BUT with Outlook it will not sync. Not Mailshot problem but Outlook.
Simply put if you have 'Groups' or 'Distribution Lists' in Outlook to neatly keep all relevant mail groups and then sync to Ipad Contacts the Groups are lost or at the very least not imported as Groups. This means that you cannot then simply transfer the Groups whilst on the ipad Contacts across to mailshot Groups.
This is a terrible error on behalf of the Outlook and a step backwards! OE allowed this as I explained on the thread and it was quite simple and neat. all my Groups (we have many groups for email lists. each car model has a different email distribution list) cannot be synced across from Outlook to ipad 'Contacts' and so the system seems to end there. Crazy like I say as it was ok before via OE. I have spent hours trying to work it around as Mailshot is excellent and lovely to use but Outlook not allowing Group Syncing to ipad has left me dead in the water.
$64,000 question ...has anyone got a workaround on how to sync a Group from Outlook to ipad and retain it as a Group on the ipad?
I bought the app MailShot and found it to be quite complicated so I experimented with my MAIL program on my 3rd generation iPad and discovered I can send emails to groups without the app.
Create a name for the group and type the group’s name into your address book in the space for the last name. Ex. FRIENDS. I added the group on my computer and then sycned the address book on my computer to my iPad.
Then where you insert the Email address just keep typing the email addresses of all those in your group typing in a comma after each address and then a space before typing in the rest of the email addresses. . Do not include names just email addresses.
When you go to “Send” the email to this group of email addresses whether in the To: Cc or Bcc line you will get a message saying you have an “Invalid Address”. Answer “Do you want to send anyway? By choosing “Send”. If in fact all the addresses are valid the message will go. Have a nice day!
the advantage of Mailshot is that you do not have to type all of the individual email addresses to set up groups - you simply select group members from your contacts. this is very convenient when you have about 20 email groups to set up!!
it is entirely apple's fault that the group email option has not been available from the first generation iPad on...thankfully there are apps such as Mailshot. shame on you, apple...all the way to iPad 4 or whatever you're calling it. i call it sadly lacking in email efficiency.
