How to add multiple contacts to gmail
Sending one e-mail to multiple Gmail contacts is efficient. (e-mail image by Ewe Degiampietro from

Google's Gmail helps e-mail users communicate with recipients on the same Gmail network or on another e-mail service. Gmail is especially helpful when senders must contact multiple recipients at once. Instead of sending e-mails one by one to recipients, a sender can simply input all e-mail addresses in the "To:" field and send the exact same e-mail. Further, if the sender is familiar with the recipients and the addresses are already in the Contact List, the sender can expedite the email.

Skill level:


    Use Contact Manager

  1. 1

    Sign in to your Gmail account, but do not begin composing the email just yet.

  2. 2

    Click on the "Contacts" link on the left-hand side, which will advance the page to your Gmail Contact List.

  3. 3

    Click the navigation options, such as "Frequently Mailed" and "All Contacts," to bring up recipients. Alternatively, type contacts' names in the box next to the Search Contacts button and then click it. Put checkmarks in the box to the left of each contact.

  4. 4

    Click the "Compose" button to advance the page. You should see all selected contacts in the "To:" field and you can now proceed in composing your e-mail.

  5. 5

    Click the "Send" button when finished and all of the contacts selected will receive the email.

    Use the Compose Window

  1. 1

    Sign in to your Gmail account.

  2. 2

    Click on the "Compose" or "Compose Mail" link.

  3. 3

    Type each e-mail contact in the "To:" field, and be sure to separate each address with a comma.

  4. 4

    Compose the body of your e-mail and hit the "Send" button.

Tips and warnings

  • Cut and paste names from the "To:" field to the "Bcc:" field if you don't want recipients to know that others are receiving the email too.
  • Be careful not to mistakenly checkmark all of the contacts indiscriminately, as the wrong parties may receive the email.
