Many iPhone and iPad users find the Mail App for iOS does not has facility to set up a contact group on iPad or iPhone, thus they are not able to send mass emails to their customers or to a group that they do business with. When you compose a new email on iPhone or iPad, there will be a Group option when you are going to add contacts or recipients, however the Group option is just to help you narrow down the search for a specific contact or email address. When you tap to open a Group, you will still need to choose a contact under the group to mail one by one. If there are 50 contacts under the group and you want to send an email to all of them, you have to select them individually for 50 times. In this tutorial, we will show you the trick to set up a group of contacts, and send group emails to all the contacts in a group easily.
If you own a web hosting, you can simply create a mailing list, attach email contacts to the list, then any email sent to the mailing list will automatically be forwarded to all email addresses in this list. It is very easy to setup and convenient to send bulk emails from iPhone, iPad or other mobile devices. See how to create a mailing list for mass mailing?
