Solved sent email to all contacts by mistake

May 7, 2013 at 16:03:43
Specs: Windows 7
I am running Windows 7 with Outlook as an account for email. I was answering a question on Linkedin and by glitch or mistake the invitation went to all my email contacts on Outlook. I would like to sent an apology in as few emails as I can to all of my contacts. I must admit that I actually did this on a new iPad that I am not up to speed with quite yet..................
Thanks ahead of time for any support,
Zeebert

In Outlook you could create a group and put all your contacts in that group. Then all you would need to do is select the group instead of clicking on each contact.

It might have been you, but it might have been Linkedin that did it (I kept getting a Linkedin 'invitation' from someone repeatedly that I doubt that they had intended me to receive, it kept coming for months.
Outlook will allow you to select many recipients for any single email, in fact, if you have a really lot of recipients (probably 50 or more), you are more likely to get the email blocked by your ISP for rending out spam (Outlook will not have a problem with it).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

If you did this on an iPad, then you aren't running Windows 7, and your Outlook mail account has nothing to do with sending to all.

Can you clarify which you are using, an iPad or a Windows 7 computer and if you are using a Windows 7 computer, which email client are you using?

I appreciate the responses! To answer THX: I am using a Dell with Windows 7, and I was asking if Outlook has an option that would let me select all of my email contacts for 1 email without having to click onto each indivual contact.
Probably looking for a short cut that doesn't exist, but wanted to ask anyway...................................thanks again,
Zbert
