Can't 'select all' contacts

Not open for further replies.

Zak Gagnon

I am trying to send an e-mail to all of the contacts in my address book. There is no "select all" and the only way to choose multiple contacts is to hold CTRL and manually click every contact.

Is there any easier way to do this??

You may try the following steps:

1. Click on the "TO" or "CC" or "Bcc" button in the new email window, you will find the Address Book open

2. Highlight the first contact at the top, press and hold SHIFT + END keys on the keyboard

3. Click on the "TO" or "CC" or "Bcc" button

Note: your email service provider may include a limit for number of recipients per email, which may result in email delivery failure once the limit is exceeded.

Another way to go would be to select all your contacts from your Contacts folder, then choose Actions-> Create-> New Message to Contact. You can then easily move all the addresses from the To field to the BCC field if you want.

Yet another way to go would be to use the Mail Merge feature. For instructions see;
