Sending multiple emails on iPhone
I recommend using the default options for this purpose, although there are paid applications like MailShot or Mail2Group in the AppStore which theoretically (never tested them on my own) can help to send few emails via an iPhone at the same time. I will tell how to create special email groups and how to send one email to all contacts from one group of this kind.
The latest iOS allows using cut-and-paste option. Group emailing feature is not yet supported by default but let’s hope for the best.
The step-by-step instruction on how to send multiple emails on an iPhone
1. The first thing you need to do is to launch the built-in Notes app and then type in a new note all email contacts you want to include into one group. Separate each new email address with a comma from the others to prevent the Invalid Addresses dialogue and server errors common for AOL and Comcast. I recommend using such format when inputting the email contacts: namen (where “n” is a figure, like Fox1fox@aol.com1).
1.1. Or you can type this list on your PC and then copy it to your iPhone. Why to do so many moves? Because you can’t just copy the email addresses from the built-in Contacts app since it is impossible to use commas for separating these contacts in this particular app (unlikely the Notes app or PC). Copy the list (see how on the screenshot).
2. After creating a list you need to launch the Contacts app and create a totally new contact (for your emailing list). Do not forget to type the name of this list in the Company’s field. Choose a simple group name like Family for your relatives’ emails.
3. Remember you were copying the list from the Notes app. Now you need to paste it to the new contact’s email field. You many alter the field’s label to Group Mail if you like.
4. Launch the Mail app you use on your iPhone and select to create a new message. The name of the previously created email group you need to type in the field To: until it will appear completely.
5. Type a message you want to send all email contacts from the group, click on Send. You will see a dialog pop up window, ignore it and click on Send again. (In some cases this dialog pop up message may be different or won’t appear at all).
Using this simple trick you will be able to create different lists and groups of email contacts and send multiple emails at once via your phone’s built-in Mail app.
