Send an email using my Address Book

The multipurpose AOL Address Book makes it easy to keep track of email addresses, phone numbers (home, work, cellular, fax, and pager), mailing addresses (work and home), birthdays, anniversaries, and even the home pages of all your friends! You can add email addresses to your Address Book directly from the email you receive, you can create group mailing lists for your private use, or you can share the above-mentioned information with everyone on the mailing list at AOL Groups@AOL.com.

Send an email from the Address Book

You can address a new email message to recipients directly from your Address Book, including copying and blind copying recipients listed in your Address Book.

To send an email to recipients from the Address Book

1. On the AOL toolbar, click the Write button.

2. In the Write Mail window, click the Address Book icon.

3. In the <screenname>'s Address Book window, select the contact to whom you want to send the email. If you want to send the email to more than one person, hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard as you select additional contacts. If you want to send the email to a group that you've created, select that group from the Groups section.

Notes:

  • Hold down the Shift key on the keyboard and click two non-contiguous addresses or groups to select all the items.
  • To add non-adjacent contacts to the selection, hold down the Ctrl key and click a contact.
  • Hold down the Ctrl key and click a selected item to undo the selection.

4. Do one of the following:

  • Click the Send To or Send Mail button to add the selected name(s) to the Send To box on the Write Mail window (for contacts with more than one email address, the screen name or email address you have designated as "primary" will be used).
  • Click the Copy To or CC button to copy the selected name(s) to the Copy To box on the Write Mail window (that is, send a CC:).
  • Click the Blind Copy or BCC button to send a blind copy to the selected name(s) (none of the other recipients will be able to see the addresses of those who receive blind copies).

5. Click the Send Now button.

6. Close the Address Book window.
