Email groups and distribution lists
I have set up a mail group with some 30 names in it. I have it on my Mac too. How on the iPhone can I send an email to each person without designating each individually. I have no prob on the Mac.
I must be missing something basic.
maybe my original post wasn't clear. I want to use my "mail group" as a distribution list when forwarding or sending an email. Can this be done on the iphone as it can be on a Mac or pc with a distribution list??
Sure wish someone had an idea on how to make it work.

There is no option by default on the iPhone to send to distribution lists. However, a quick Google search shows that cnet has 2 workarounds listed. I haven't tested either of these, but they seem like they would work. I may give the 1st one a try myself, as I'm always sending photos/vids of my baby daughter to the same family members.

EDIT: Folks should know, as I just discovered, that this only works for email addresses. Anyone know the MMS suffix for Verizon? I know AT&T's is mms.att.net

Just a note to say that MailShot is even closer to what you were asking for now.
The new version released yesterday (1.41) adds a feature to import address book groups, making it faster and easier to create contacts that can address many people at once. I hope you find it useful.

Yes, in fact MailShot is the only easy way to forward an email to a group AND retain all of its attachments that we know of.
You import the address book group into MailShot first, this creates a contact you can use in Mail to forward the email to. Its free to download to try with a small group. Drop me a line on our support address if you need any help.
